of a need in the Oswego community for a quality and diverse youth theater program, Limelight has grown from a dozen middle-school children writing their own plays to a larger organization involving over a hundred participants of all ages tapping into their creativity and sharing it.

Pinot & Paint nights; art instruction studio and art gallery, Open Art nights, art classes, open houses, jewelry classes, fused glass classes, pottery studio and charity events. Watch their website and Facebook page for art shows, classes and competitions.

Limelight’s official motto is “Where everyone plays a part” and its mission is to teach, to learn, to create, and to share through theater. The Limelight Theatre Company follows five simple rules when working creatively: Be original, be gracious, be “we,” be bold and be challenging.
