The Ghost Light Players, is a fledgling community theater group based in MetroWest Massachusetts (cities and towns lying west of Boston and east of Worcester, MA), that is offering a variety of plays and musicals to engage their community and build a new comapany. They are starting with the heart of the community theatre experience.
According to their press release, “Ghost Light Players of MetroWest is a theater group operating out of Marlborough, Massachusetts and serving the MetroWest area. We are a small, intrepid group of actors, musicians, directors and stage crew who love theater in all its variety. We are building our fledgling group into something that lasts. Ghost Light Players hearken back to the days of old, when traveling troupes entertained their patrons with little more than a few props, masterful skill and an avid love of theater. Our sets are small, our costumes are minimal, but our talents and passions are great.”
Their next production is TRW’s ode to the old school comic books LOVE COMICS, a heart-stopping and affectionate tribute to the classic romance comic books of the 1940’s and ’50’s. It’s a whirlwind course in the hard won lessons of love! Written by SARAH SCHLESINGER and DAVID EVANS, this nifty musical valentine to wooing in days gone by, is a retro-cool roller-coaster of romance set to an tuneful, upbeat score that is as much fun to perform as it is to see!
The Ghost Light company is embracing the spirit of the show and has cast some community members who were keen to get on stage for the first time or dust off their diction and get back in the spotlight! One of their leads, Marlborough, MA’s Katie Follett, has brought her love of entertaining to the show. Her words capture the feeling of getting involved with a community theatre in a supportive environment. “It’s a musical…and I’ve never been a singer, but this guy encouraged me…and I sort found this voice I didn’t have…” Check out this inspiring video, for all those who want to get involved at their local theatres:
LOVE COMICS plays March 15 & 16 at 8 PM and March 17 at 2 PM at the First Church in Marlborough – 37 High Street, Marlborough, MA Click HERE for tickets and info.
