What the heck is a ghost light, anyway?

A ghost light, in theater terms, is a bare bulb left on the stage when the theater is dark. This is to prevent anyone entering the theater from falling off the edge or running into set pieces.

However, theater people are a superstitious lot, and adapted the safety measure to a tradition that says the ghost light is either so the spirits of the theater can perform with light (and what theater isn't haunted?) or that it is there to dispel the spirits aiming to make mischief on stage.

Here at Ghost Light Theater we love the idea of a stage never without light, a stage constantly ready to perform. In the spirit of keeping theater a moderna nd alive art, we use the name of the ghost light.
