Welcome to Spotlight on Lake! As we've progressed through this pandemic, I've tried my best to keep up! Whenever possible, I'm posting news and information as soon as I get it. If there's something you'd like to see, let me know and I'll see if I can get it/add it.
It's looking like like live theater will return in September, so I've changed Theater Listings back to theater, Click on the header to find listings for live-streamed theatrical and dance performances playing this week. Click on the header, Theater Listings, and you'll find listings for future online and in-person theater and dance openings.
Since I've been getting lots of listings for online arts & education - such as Opera (highlights or past performances), Concerts, Entertainment (anything from movies to magic), Galas/Fundraisers, Lectures, Readings, Classes and Webinars - so I've added a new header called What's Coming Up Online.
Please remember to mask up - it's for your safety! Carol
