Ghostlight History

What if...

Ghostlight was born from a desire to make communal theatre that audiences wanted to see.

In early 2016, we – a group of Chicago storefront theatre veterans – gathered in a Northside apartment and over grilled meats and tasty treats uttered the age old phrase, “What if…” 

We wanted a place where our ideas were nurtured and our talents respected, where we could work hard AND have fun and where everyone had the chance to grow, a chance to leave our mark – however weird or serious or funny that might be. And so, like so many of our theatre siblings, we created that place for ourselves.

There's a place here for you too. Join us.
