Hamilton’s Theatre Department students and faculty joined with theatres across the country to take part in the Ghostlight Project on Jan. 19, gathering at 5:30 p.m. outside Romano Theater in the Kennedy Arts Center.

According to its website, the purpose of the project was “to gather outside theatres to create a ‘light’ for dark times ahead, and to make or renew a pledge to stand for and protect the values of inclusion, participation and compassion for everyone, regardless of race, class, religion, country of origin, immigration status (dis)ability, gender identity or sexual orientation.”

Participants brought phones and flashlights and turned on their lights simultaneously create one giant collective light. 

The $400 million campaign marked the most ambitious fundraising initiative in the College's history.
