Did you know that ticket sales only account for 30-40% of a community theatre company's income? We rely on your donations and support to fund every theatrical season, but it is especially important this year. Because it is our inaugural season, we have the additional costs of all of the startup fees that come with creating a non-profit.
"We are very fortunate to live in an area that is supportive of the arts. There are a lot of start-up costs for opening a new theatre group, not to mention for producing a musical and the Performing Arts Youth Academy. We are launching a fundraising campaign, and hope the community demonstrates their excitement and commitment through participation in our Main Stage Patron Program, or through advertising and sponsorship opportunities."

"I got involved with Ghostlight because I have always had a passion for theater. When I graduated high school, I got caught up in the working world and had to put that passion on the back burner. Ghostlight provided me the opportunity to pursue that passion again. I highly recommend Ghostlight to anyone who wants to perform or work backstage in theater productions. Ghostlight has given many individuals in the local community a friendly, accepting environment in which they can express themselves, and enjoy the wonderful artform that is theater."
