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?"

Nick Conrad

Nick was most recently seen on the Ghostlight Stage as Jordan in Asherella and Bilbo The Blue Balloon in It's Poppin' - both part of Make/Believe 2022: A short play festival for young audiences. As well as acting, Nick also performs stand-up and sketch comedy at various locations around Chicago.

She was most recently seen on the Ghostlight stage as Queen B in Asherella and Brooklyn in Best Friends - both part of Make/Believe 2022: A short play festival for young audiences.

Review: BIG FISH at Marriott Theatre, Lincolnshire IL Photo
What did our critic think of Big Fish? The new theater season has begun. The current production at Marriott Theatre is Big Fish which is based upon the novel by Daniel Wallace and the Columbia Motion Picture written by John August. The book is by John August and music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa. Under the direction of Henry Godinez and associate director and choreographer Tommy Rapley, this story of a big fish, a witch, Karl the giant, a mermaid and a circus run by a werewolf are brought to life in all their glory. In the end, though, it is about love and family.
