The Princeton Triangle, the Lewis Center for the Arts program in Theatre at Princeton University, and McCarter Theatre Center will launch a joint Ghostlight Project this week. Participation 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, building a network of people across the country working to support vulnerable communities.
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, disability, gender identity, or sexual orientation.
Participants should meet outside the Matthews Theatre at McCarter, which is located at 92 University Place in downtown Princeton, promptly at 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 19. A series of brief remarks will kick off the event and will be followed by a group “moment of light.” The event will conclude by 6 p.m.
