Live performances in theater, dance, and comedy. The Spotlight Series is for the cultural omnivore. Each Spotlight show is compelling, unique, and makes the broad spectrum of the arts more accessible to the public. This series continues the proud legacy of the Performing Arts Society of Acadiana (“PASA”), which led the presenting of theater and dance in Acadiana from 1989 until its merger into the AcA in 2015.
