Ghostlight Theatre Ensemble








What is a ghostlight? Sneak into a theater late at night, and you might find the only source of light is a single uncovered bulb on a tall stand at center stage. Some say ghostlights ward off evil spirits by fooling them into thinking the building is occupied, and it’s bad luck (and bad business) for a theater to be dark without a show. Leaving a ghostlight on is a way of making sure the house is always lit.







Ghostlight Theatre Ensemble is led by a seasoned team of performers, technicians and educators with extensive theatrical training and experience. Through its network of support developed with local government, businesses, schools and non-profit organizations, Ghostlight engages com


munity members in its mission, encouraging local talent, backstage personnel and others to create live theater that may be enjoyed on both sides of the lights.

The mission of Ghostlight Theatre Ensemble is to entertain, educate and enrich our circle of local communities by offering diverse and quality theatrical experiences.





Did you know that Ghostlight performers can provide entertainment at your next event? One of our primary ways of raising funds is through our showcase performances. We have performed at corporate and non-profit events, and have even performed in backyards and private homes. We would love to talk to you about how Ghostlight can make your next event fun and memorable. For more information, contact Nancy Torres at smithtorres@comcast.net.



Ghostlight Theatre Ensemble encourages all community members to participate in Ghostlight productions. We believe that local live theatre should provide a supportive environment for creative expression for people of all genders, ethnicities and backgrounds. Every day, we work to ensure that Ghostlight is a safe, welcoming space where all members of our cast, creative team, production crew, volunteers and audience members can learn, grow, and create.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

We are proactively working towards greater diversity within the cast of our shows. This is an on-going process, and we recognize that it is our responsibility to broaden our reach to ensure that BIPOC and LGBTQ+ community members are aware of upcoming auditions, and to ensure that they feel welcome to join our productions. We are also broadening our reach to attract BIPOC directors and production team members. We know this can make a significant difference in generating greater diversity at our auditions.

If you are interested in helping us build the kind of diverse and inclusive theatre company that our community deserves, please contact us so we can work together in this endeavor. Your support is greatly needed, and much appreciated.
