Go Wilde with Ghostlight this spring


We just wrapped up initial auditions for An Ideal Husband last night and we have callbacks scheduled for Sunday. We had hundreds of actors submit and we saw more than 60 actors over two days. There is so much hard-working talent in this city, it boggles the mind.

Through our fundraiser, you have the opportunity to get to know these best of the best who will ultimately be cast in the 11 roles in our production. You'll gain insight on how actors become the characters you see on stage and how they go about their craft.

At the GO WILDE LEVEL, you'll join cast members and the director for tea and biscuits in an informal setting where you will be able to chat one-on-one about how we brought Oscar Wilde's biting satire of political intrigue to life.

Though written in 1895, An Ideal Husband's plot, which centers around blackmail and political corruption, hits an all too familiar note for modern audiences living through daily reports of political scandal. It's a show you will not want to miss — and you won't have to with the Go Wilde Level, which includes a free pair of tickets to the show, along with a second pair to any other show in our season. So bring a friend and take this opportunity to G.E.T. a rare peek behind the (stage) curtain.

Snuggle up with some cookies, cocoa and killer dolls this holiday season


Over here at Ghostlight Central, we're gearing up for Gingerbread Grindhouse with auditions scheduled for next week, a production team already on board and a line of Nutcrackers out the door. If you like a little horror with your holidays, this is the show for you.

In a nod to the lurid, violent films popular in the 1930s through 1970s, Gingerbread Grindhouse will feature a series of live “trailers” for grindhouse-style plays yet to be, before continuing on to the feature production, Nutcracker Nightmare – a holiday tale of children, the toys they love and the toys that try to kill everyone they love.

By donating to the G.E.T. Funding online fundraiser you have the opportunity to GET involved (see our last update and also the $100 donation level), or maybe you just want to know more about the production itself while chatting with the director, playwrights and actors. For just $25 you can get a pair of tickets to the show, join cast members and the director for cookies and cocoa beforehand and find out about the holiday magic that brings murderous dolls to life.
