Ghost Light

"Due to the COVID-19 shutdown, PACA is dark for the rest of March and for what we can foresee much of April as well.

The Ghost Light keeps us safe. It keeps the ghosts happy. And it extends a message of hope.

The theater may be dark for the moment. But know full well, the darkness will not last.

Eventually the lights will come back up. The actors will beat the boards. The audience will come and be entertained. The show must, and will, go on.

To all of us sheltering from our current dilemma, spend this time preparing for when the lights shine again. Love the ones you love. Do good work. The darkness is only temporary."

- Mark Tanenbaum, Executive Director
