MCT Presents Ghost Light Theater
MCT is happily dealing with the sadness of not being able to present live performances by creating digital productions under the banner of MCT Presents Ghost Light Theater. In the theater, a “ghost light” is a light, often a single bulb on a stand, that illuminates the stage when the theater is dark, i.e., when no production is being presented. It can be simply between performances or when there is a more extended absence of productions. We thought it fitting for this time.
We have no set schedule, although we have been posting a new entry every week, usually toward the end of each week. You can see all of the GLT productions here or on our YouTube channel, @mctshows! Feel free to subscribe to our channel or to the Ghost Light Theater Playlist on our channel. We hope you will enjoy the growingly diverse potpourri of work we are creating, and welcome requests and suggestions.
MCT’s Ghost Light Theater Presents Ali in LaLa Land
We continue our online Ghost Light Theater series with another great monologue from Ali Eppy with Ali in La La Land! Here’s what Ali has to say: “‘Ali in LaLa Land’ traces my 1970 move from New York to Los Angeles. While I may have missed the Summer of Love, I’m ready to embrace my ‘pseudo-hippie period!'”
Ali Eppy is known for her performances with Mountain Community Theater, Santa Cruz Actors’ Theatre, Tandy Beal & Co., Van Antwerp Theatre Company, and Cabrillo College, among others. “Ali in LaLa Land” is part of a series of memoir monologues from Ali in Wonderland—My Kaleidoscopic Life.
Mountain Community Theater statement regarding Racism, Police Violence, and Racial Inequality
Mountain Community Theatre whole-heartedly supports the Black Lives Matter movement and other groups and individuals who are working against racism, police violence, and inequality. We realize that what we present to our community on stage makes a difference — and we endeavor to tell stories that deepen an understanding of the human condition. We consider ourselves a “family of artists’ behind the scenes, where we strive to make sure that everyone feels seen, heard, and valued for who they are. We believe that justice matters and that the fight for meaningful change must involve all of us.
