McCarter Theatre Center, The Lewis Center for the Arts Program in Theatre at Princeton University, and Princeton Triangle Club invite any interested persons to meet on January 19 at 5:30 p.m. outside the Matthews Theatre to launch The Ghostlight Project. This event is free and open to the public.

More than 100 professional, educational, and community theaters around the country plan to take part in this initiative.

The Ghostlight Project aims to create spaces that will serve as beacons of light in the coming years, the hoped-for outcome of which is a network of people across the country working to support vulnerable communities. These gatherings are a public affirmation of each theater’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. They are 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, (dis)ability, gender identity, or sexual orientation.

Organizers ask that participants begin to arrive starting at 5 p.m. At 5:30 p.m., a series of brief remarks will commence, followed by a group “moment of light.” The event will conclude by 6 p.m.

No RSVP is necessary, but if you do plan on attending, please feel free to mark “going” on the Facebook event here: The Ghostlight Project at McCarter.
