About Miss Beth's Spotlight

Spotlight is a theatre program for youth ages 7 to 17 led by Beth Bonnabeau. The teen program is designed for high school and college students. It is underwritten by Brookfield Theatre to keep costs low and to make theatre education accessible to all.

Beth has been a childrens theatre educator/director since the early 90's. She received her BA in Theatre in 1989 from SUNY Plattsburgh where she served as President of Alpha Psi Omega, a National Theatre Honors Fraternity, and Vice President of the College Theatre Association. Beth discovered her passion for childrens theatre early. She taught and directed at many local theatres, schools and dance studios and is thrilled to be bringing her very specific skill set to Brookfield Theatre. Beth is known for creating safe spaces for children to express themselves and discover the joys of being part of a family of actors . . . a "no judgement zone" where young people are free to stretch their imaginations and creativity to the max!

All Covid-19 protocols will be adhered to by our fully vaccinated staff. Keeping everyone safe is our priority! For more information, please email:



Your support helps us to provide the best quality live and virtual performances while keeping ticket prices low to keep the arts alive in our community.


Thank you to our 2022 season supporters!
