The Ghost Light is On

5 May

Ghost lights have been a practice and tradition in theatre for ages. They are left lit onstage following performances as a safety measure, and – for those who are superstitious – as illumination for playful spirits of actors long passed while the theatre is empty.

They also mean that even though the artists have gone home for the night, they will be back.  



We send all our love and support to our colleagues who have had to postpone or cancel productions and seasons, as well as our endless thanks and gratitude to essential and health care workers across Canada. During this difficult time of social and physical distancing, please stay safe and take care of yourselves. We look forward to the day where we can safely gather together, share stories, and put away the ghost light.
