The Ghostlight Project
Thursday, January 19 at 5:30PM
In front of the Ethel M. Barber Theater

On January 19 at 5:30 p.m. in each time zone across the country, members of the theater community - from Broadway to regional theaters to high schools and colleges and community theaters - will come together to launch The Ghostlight Project. Gathering outside of theaters on the eve of the Presidential Inauguration, people will join in a collective, simultaneous action, together creating “light” for challenging times ahead. 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.

Join NU Theatre professors Jessica Thebus and Rives Collins, and other members of the Northwestern University theatre community as they join the project. Bring a source of light (such as a flashlight) and an open heart and mind. The event will begin promptly at 5:30 p.m in front of the Barber Theater and a collective reading of the U.S. Constitution will follow.
