I cannot believe this will be my sixth year of hosting First Night Spotlight, one of the biggest events happening on New Years Eve in Missoula! Arts Missoula (formerly the Missoula Cultural Council) and UM Productions are teaming up to produce First Night Spotlight for another year. First Night Spotlight is the community’s showcase of the local high school talent. Three acts from each of the four auditions will perform on New Year’s Eve in the UM Dennison Theatre. Auditions will be held at Sentinel, Big Sky, and Hellgate High Schools in early December. Plus, surrounding areas will also have a chance to audition in the University Center Theater (UC 3rd Floor) on Saturday, December 3. Admission buttons into First Night are $15. Tickets to First Night Spotlight are an additional $2. Again this year there will be a “People’s Choice” award, chosen during the event. Come check out the local talent!
