The Ghostlight Project

Reavis Theatre participated in the #ghostlightproject . This nationwide event marked Reavis' continued commitment to creating a safe school for its students.

The "ghost light" now in the Grossman Auditorium pit will remain lit for the remainder of the school year as a reminder of our pledge to fight for "light" and to make sure no one is left in darkness.
