Are you 14 - 22 ? 

          Spotlight is looking for new talent!


          Creative opportunities for young people in Lancaster and Morecambe. 

          As part of it’s 'Listening To Youth' project, funded by Arts Council England, Lancaster Spotlight is looking for new young writers, comedians and singer/songwriters... 

          In February Spotlight will be hosting two free 'Listening To Youth' Open Mic Try-Outs. 

          ‘This is a great chance for young people to perform their own poems, stories, songs or comedy,’ says Sarah Fiske, Co-ordinator at Lancaster Spotlight. ‘These events will be friendly and informal. Young people entering will have 5 minutes to perform any original iece of material.’ 

          The Open-Mic Try-Out events will be held in Morecambe and Lancaster in February. The Morecambe event will be at the William Mitchell on Westgate on Tuesday 25th at 6pm. The Lancaster event will be at The Gregson Centre, Moor Lane on Wednesday 26th, also at 6pm. Entry is free to both performers and audience. 

          ‘Come and listen... or, better still, come and perform!’ says Project Co-ordinator, Ron Baker. ‘Whether you perform or come as audience, participation is free!’ 

          Following on from the Open-Mic try-outs there will be a chance to take part in free writing/performance workshops leading to a Spotlight ‘Listening To Youth’ Showcase at The Storey Auditorium in March. The project is a follow-on from a successful Spotlight youth project in 2012. Many of those who took part last time have become regular performers.
