Miss Beth's
Spotlight

Spotlight is our low-cost theatre program for youth ages 7 to 17 led by Beth Bonnabeau. 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!

    "Dot"
    by Colman Domingo

    ABOUT THE SHOW
    The holidays are always a wild family affair at the Shealy house. But this year, Dotty and her three grown children gather with more than exchanging presents on their minds. As Dotty struggles to hold on to her memory, her children must fight to balance care for their mother and care for themselves. This twisted and hilarious new play grapples unflinchingly with aging parents, midlife crises, and the heart of a West Philly neighborhood.

    CASTING
    • Dot - Female, 65+, Black/African Descent - The matriarch of the Shealy family, she has been suffering with the effects of aging yet, at her best, is still a force of nature
    • Shelly - Female, 35 - 45, Black/African Descent - The serious older sister, lawyer and caregiver for her mother, obsessed about doing it all
    • Donnie - Male, 35 - 45, Black/African Descent - The middle child, music critic, married to Adam, coming to terms with the gap between his dreams and his reality
