ABOUT THE AUDREY HERMAN SPOTLIGHTERS THEATRE
The Audrey Herman SPOTLIGHTERS has been a part of the Baltimore Theatre Community since 1962. Originally created as part of Mayor Grady's Stage Crafters Project within the Parks and Recreation Department in 1958, SPOTLIGHTERS was born when the program ended in 1962. For more than 37 years, the theatre flourished under the leadership and artistic vision of Audrey Herman. Ms. Herman's program of presenting a new professionally produced show every month allowed for a wide variety of productions and many opportunities for directors, designers and actors to experience SPOTLIGHTERS' intimate setting. Following Audrey's death in 1999, the theatre began its transition into a Maryland Public Charity, a recognized 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Several alumni of SPOTLIGHTERS have gone on to receive Tony, Emmy, Obie, and Academy Award nominations. Today, SPOTLIGHTERS Theatre’s dedicated staff, performers and volunteers continue Audrey's vision of providing quality theatre and opportunities for new artists, directors, designers and actors to refine their skills on a professional stage.
