From the Desk of 
L.Don Swartz

Hi. Hope everyone is staying healthy and well. The last year has been difficult for everyone and it is exciting to see some real light at the end of the tunnel.

We are excited to be working on plans to reopen for the 2021-22 season. We are announcing our season at the annual membership meeting on May 24.

We are so very grateful to all of you for the generous donations as well as the letters and messages of encouragement. Just when we got to feel hopeless a message would come along to lift our spirits. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Thank you also for the kind words on our videos of our productions this year. No one has to tell real theatre people that live theatre is the only way to go...but we promised shows and we are going to deliver them. Not only do we need to stay connected with our audience but as creative people we needed to stay together and produce these projects for you. Sitting on our hands for a year and doing nothing was not an option. We are working on a Lottie and Bernice video and a musical retrospective of our first 50 years of musicals. Then it's back to what we prefer and do best...live theatre.

Check back to this space from time to time for updates. See you soon!!!!!

In just a little over 3 months we will be back on stage performing for you!!!  Make sure you get your tickets for our return to the Ghostlight Stage.  The world premiere of L. Don Swartz

       "Tales from the Ghostlight "       


Finally the day many of us have been waiting for...

2021 Season.jpg

Please Note

Seating Preferences:  Due to the undpredictable  nature of the pandemic, we will use General Seating this season.  Subscribers will have access to the auditorium one half hour before the doors open to the public.  This will give subscribers the opportunity to sit wherever they want!  There will be no reserved seating this season.


For an 8pm show, the doors for subscribers will open at 7pm allowing you the option to pick any available seat first, first come first served so to speak.  If you come at 7:30pm when we open the doors to the general public, your seat choices will be limited to what is left.

Our home needs your help!  We're in need of repairs to keep our home in good shape.  The ticket sales and snack bar contributions help us with our day to day operations and purchasing set pieces and set supplies.  But our home is getting older and is in need of repairs.  We are asking you to please consider a contribution to our Restoration Fund to keep our theatre looking as good as she did when she was built a 129 years ago.  Currently besides the Go Fund Me page our 50/50 take is all we are receiving to help with our restoration.  Please consider donating anything you can, every dollar helps.

Thank you for your continuing support of the Ghostlight Theatre!
