About Ghostlight Theatre Ensemble:

Ghostlight Theatre Ensemble was launched in March 2018, bringing together a seasoned team of performing artists, business leaders and educators all with the same mission – to entertain, educate and enrich their circle of local communities by offering diverse and quality theatrical experiences. The Ghostlight team was particularly interested in attracting top talent to its auditions, with the goal of motivating those from outside the immediate community to come out to the East County region to see the arts and culture of the area. Through its network of support developed with local government, businesses, schools and non-profit organizations, Ghostlight Theatre Ensemble engages community 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.

Ghostlight Theatre Ensemble is a young company, but already its productions have impacted thousands of people who either attended their productions or were involved in putting them on. Ghostlight Theatre Ensemble also offers classes during the summer as part of their Performing Arts Youth Academy (PAYA) and Senior Performing Arts Academy (PASA) for age-55+ participants.
