Ghost Light Theatricals debuts in Ballard

Ghost Light Theatricals, a non-profit theater company, recently moved into The Ballard Underground (2220 NW Market St) and producers are getting ready to put on their first fully-produced show here in our neighborhood.

The door to Ghost Light Theatricals. Yes, that’s a liquor license application on the door.

The group jumped on the chance to take over the space when Live Girls! Theater moved out. “It just seemed wrong that Ballard would be theater-less,” Matt Lyman the Artistic Associate/Literary Manager of Ghost Light tells us. “We also loved that it isn’t just a neighborhood it is a family. We have met our neighbors and every one of them, without exception, was kind, courteous and welcoming.” Before moving to Ballard, Ghost Light was renting for nearly a decade. “We had been talking about attempting to get our own space after renting for almost a decade, and when this one came open we ramped up our efforts,” Lyman says.

The first show will be a modern adaptation of the Anton Chekhov classic “Three Sisters.” Curtains up on April 2nd, 3rd, 8th, 9th, 10th, 15th, 16th and 17th at 7:30pm and April 18th at 2:00pm. Tickets are $15, $12 for students and seniors, and are available at the door or online here.
