Grand Valley Theatre will join artists and communities nationwide in participation with the Ghostlight Project. Across the country, members of the theater community – from Broadway to regional theaters to high schools and colleges and community theaters – have come together to launch the project.
Inspired by the tradition of leaving a “ghost light” on in a darkened theater, artists and communities will make or renew a pledge to stand for and protect the values of inclusion, participation, and compassion for everyone–regardless of race, class, religion, country of origin, immigration status, disability, age, gender identity, or sexual orientation.
The project officially began on Jan. 19 at 5:30 p.m. and Grand Valley Theatre has begun their participation by filling out “I am” statements and posting them in the Theatre Lab space in PAC 1103. The statements represent diversity within the community.
Grand Valley Theatre will continue their participation with ongoing projects. Some of the theatre classes will be talking about and participating in the project. The ReACT program within Grand Valley Theatre currently meets many of the values held by the Ghostlight Project.
