Ghostlight Ensemble Theatre Company Welcomes Three New Ensemble Members

Chicago actors Nick Conrad, Courtney Marie and Reid Henry have joined Ghostlight Ensemble Theatre Company. All three were seen in Ghostlight productions this past season.

Ghostlight is a true ensemble-driven theater company, according to Co-Artistic Director Miona Lee, which means the entire company participates in the decision-making process. It's one of the great and unique aspects of Ghostlight, she adds. That includes programming, which is selected by the Ensemble after having open and honest discussions about the material.

"We move forward as a group and each member provides valuable perspective, Lee said. "I'm excited to see where Ghostlight will go with these new voices.

"Each one of these new members have unique backgrounds and passions that will provide us more opportunity to push our mission in new and interesting ways. What's more exciting than that?"
