FUTURE TENANT PUTS THE SPOTLIGHT ON EMERGING MUSICIANS AND PERFORMERS
SPOTLIGHT! is a special one-night event showcasing great local and emerging performing
PITTSBURGH, PA— This April, Future Tenant is hosting its first-ever live performance
competition to showcase emerging Pittsburgh-area performance artists. SPOTLIGHT! is a
one-part competitive performance series created to allow emerging, local performers and
groups show the community what they’ve got to offer.
On Saturday April 15
at 7:00 PM, SPOTLIGHT: Monologue Night will feature performers of
theatre, spoken word, and slam poetry. The winners will compete for the audience’s votes
and the performer(s) with the most votes at the end of the night will win a $200 cash prize!
Both performances will take place at Future Tenant’s space at 819 Penn Avenue. Tickets for
each night of SPOTLIGHT! will be $7 online prior to the show and $10 cash only at the door.
We will be serving complimentary beverages by Future Tenant’s generous sponsor, Straub Beer.
“Here at Future Tenant we are committed to showcasing emerging artists of all genres,” says
Brittany Dies, Associate Director of Programming. “We have revamped our Future Ten play
festival to include not only theatre performers but musicians as well."
