Spotlight pulls out all the stops for The Rock­field Cen­tre

The Oban Times - - News -

A STUN­NING per­for­mance from the Spotlight Mu­si­cal Theatre Group was en­thu­si­as­ti­cally re­ceived at Oban’s Phoenix Cin­ema last Satur­day with The Rock­field Re­view – a spe­cial con­cert to raise funds for The Rock­field Cen­tre.

A first act of per­for­mances from the Broad­way shows and sil­ver screen was fol­lowed by a re-worked con­cert of Spotlight’s re­cent sell- out show - Cole Porter’s Any­thing Goes. And the same magic that had made the first per­for­mance so pop­u­lar was again re-kin­dled with a spec­tac­u­lar show of mu­sic, song and dance.

Nar­ra­tor Stephen Glen-Lee told the story of the last voy­age of the SS Amer­i­can in fine style and ex­cel­lent per­for­mances from ev­ery­one in Spotlight had the au­di­ence spell-bound with their pro­fes­sional per­for­mance.

In thank­ing Spotlight,Gor­don McNab, chair­man of Oban Com­mu­ni­ties Trust, said: ‘It is re­ally ap­pro­pri­ate that less than a year ago, in this very cin­ema, a public meet­ing was held to gauge com­mu­nity sup­port for buy­ing the Rock­field Cen­tre and we are here now to celebrate not only get­ting the keys but fund-rais­ing to re­alise this ex­cit­ing pro­ject. Spotlight Theatre has been a sup­porter from the start and we want to thank it for both its fi­nan­cial help and also for putting on this fan­tas­tic per­for­mance tonight to raise funds.’

Spotlight gave a su­perb per­for­mance to raise cash for Rock­field.
