“Ghostlight” to spotlight supernatural
NEW YORK, NY — After shooting the pilot episode at the historic former Repertory Theatre of Boston (Boston University Theatre) in January, ‘Project Ghostlight’ is ready for the spotlight. The series created by SchoonerScout productions explores the lost history of America’s theatres. Legend, lore, and the lure of the supernatural set the stage for a haunting experience.

“Ghostlight" plans to venture across the US in search of stories told in the dark wings of old theatre houses.
“Every theatre has a story to tell, every actor is dying to tell it, and we want to be there when the spirits are stirred up by the tale," said Steve Maihack and Michael Todd Cohen, the show’s creators and hosts.
More than just a history lesson, “Ghostlight" includes an overnight stay in the darkened theatre for three up-and-coming actors, calling out the spirits of the theatre just outside the glow of the footlights. Episode stars: Ryan Serhant from As The World Turns, Stephanie Carey from The Education of Max Bickford, and Allie Schulz- a finalist on Grease: You’re the One That I Want. It’s narrated by veteran actor Philip Bosco ("Damages" on FX).
“Ghostlight" offers a promising new view on theatres of old in the United States, unveiling centuries of buried stories by illuminating the ghosts of America’s stage.
