KBCZ interview with Peter Gelbum
Listen to MCT’s President, Peter Gelblum, interviewed about Ghost Light Theater and MCT by Tina Davey on SLV’s own KBCZ! Listen here
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.

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.
