The principle of an illumination and projection system including LED light sources for a spot type stage lighting system was presented, and its optical system was designed with optimizing parameters by the analytical methods. A dichroic mirror incorporated with an illumination system to optimizing LED source positions and to obtain the compact system. The projection system was optimized with specific constraints such as a chromatic aberration, distortion aberration and angle of incidence angles. Optimized design system has a beam angle from $10^{\circ}$ to $45^{\circ}$, and its illuminance was 4,500lux at distance of 6m on the work plane.
