The Ghost Light Project
On Thursday, Jan. 19th, members of the theatrical community across the United States will be joining in a collective, simultaneous action and together be creating a “light” for the challenging times that are ahead. Inspired by the tradition of leaving a “ghost light” on in a darkened theatre, artists and communities are making or renewing a pledge to stand for and protect the values of inclusion, participation, and compassion for everyone – regardless of race, class, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, country of origin, (dis)ability, immigration status, or age.
Theatre of NOTE is proud to join in as one of the countless “Brave Spaces” across the country through The Ghost Light Project and help serve as a beacon that will aim to activate a network of people across the country and work to support vulnerable communities, pledging for a continued vigilance and increase in advocacy. The Ghost Light Project defines a Brave Space as a location that is safe for someone to be who they are, regardless of their diverse background. A place that invites diverse opinions, encourages the exchange of fundamental ideals, and values a level of community engagement that cultivates and influences positive change and support.
If you would like to join Theatre of NOTE and support The Ghost Light Project, you can enter through our open doors on Thursday, Jan. 19th starting at 5:30pm or visit any other participating venue/establishment. For more information on what you can do as an individual, who else is participating, the long term goals of The Ghost Light Project, and more, please visit TheGhostLightProject.com
22nd Annual Hollywood Performance Marathon
It’s that time of the year again! On Saturday, January 28th starting at 3pm, Theatre of NOTE will be bursting into the new year with the 22nd Annual Hollywood Performance Marathon! An all-day-all-night artistic extravaganza of eclectic performances including anything and everything that you could possibly imagine. Every 10 minutes is a new and entertaining act that is sure to have you on the edge of your seat and begging for more!
Looking for some poetry readings and stand-up comedy? Perhaps singing and improv teams are what gets you excited. But why stop there! How about a dance routine with GIANT BUBBLES? Or a FIRE EATING UNICYCLIST? When is the last time you saw a juggler cook pancakes live on stage while juggling other items and THEN JUGGLED PANCAKES? All of this and MORE is what you’re bound to see on the Theatre of NOTE stage starting at 3pm and ending only when nobody can take anymore entertainment in the great conclusion that is LAST MAN STANDING. And if you need to take a break from all the excitement to get a big dinner, don’t fret! Your ticket is good for the entire duration so you’re free to come and go because your $20 ticket is good for all of the 22nd Annual Hollywood Performance Marathon! Can you survive until the early Sunday morning hours? Come find out!
