Aspie Works hits the MuCCC stage once again on March 3, with its full production of the original play Ghost Light!
Written by company founder Justin Rielly, the play – described as a “meditation on stage” – chronicles a day in the life of Max Campbell, a successful theater director in mourning. His latest production of The Seagull suffered a freak accident, leading to the death of an actress named Lenny – who has now become the theater’s ghost. When Max decides to give up his building to a returning actor coming off success in New York – who also has a French-born ghost-hunting reality star for a girlfriend – Lenny is determined to stop him. And there’s a personal connection between the director and the ghost…
Frequent Aspie Works collaborator Jacqueline Moe makes her directorial debut with this project, which features an acclaimed ensemble cast including Stephen Cena, Colleen DiVincenzo, James Lockhart and Laura Pratt. Katie Guy serves as stage manager, with Chris Nimick in charge of the lighting design. Acclaimed playwright Maria Brandt is the creative consultant, and Louie Podlaski designs the film’s poster.
Ghost Light will be presented March 3, 4 and 5 at the MuCCC (142 Atlantic Avenue, Rochester), with evening performances at 7:30pm and the Saturday matinee at 2:00pm. Tickets are $8 in advance, with the price at $10 at the door.
