Spotlighters Cabaret

This summer, Mainstage Center for the Arts is introducing a brand new offering that can be paired with their usual Summer Stage program. The Spotlighters Cabaret is an exciting new opportunity for Summer Stage students to work together to put on a cabaret!


Mainstage Center for the Art’s  Summer Stage is the oldest, most successful, and most affordable youth theater program in Southern New Jersey. We offer a series of creative theater programs specifically designed to allow children of every age to expand their skills. For 36 summers, children have enjoyed Summer Stage, where participants use their imaginations to share the MAGIC of live performances through outstanding musical productions and creative set construction. Since its first summer, in 1989, Summer Stage has become one of the longest-running performing arts camps in South Jersey.

Summer Stage runs Monday through Friday for all sessions and is held at Camden County College (200 College Drive, Blackwood, NJ).
