The Ghost Light

The Ghost LightOn any given afternoon, when there are no rehearsals or performances taking place in the main hall, you are likely to find a single, solitary light bulb lighting the stage of the Dixie Theatre.

The significance of this light ‘s presence  goes far beyond the realm of luminance for us mere mortals.  The ghost light tradition dates back to ancient times, as a means of keeping the stage lit, not just to keep the occasional awkward stage hand from stubbing his toes, but to provide a source of radiance for the performers in the after-life.  Hence the term “ghost light”.
