“Night time sharpens, heightens each sensation”
The Phantom of the Opera

The sell-out event of 2021 returns to the stage, the foyers, and all around the Princess Theatre in this beguiling mix of history, architecture, and performance. 

There is a superstition that if an empty theatre is ever left completely dark, a ghost will take up residence. To prevent this, a single ghostlight is left burning centre stage. 

During the pandemic, the lights of Broadway and the West End were gone and ghostlight’s around the world shone through the darkness as a beacon of hope that performance, music, and connection would return, in time. Throughout that period the only inhabitants of the theatres were the ghosts that once graced the stage, allowed again free reign to indulge in performance.

This is a theatre tour with a difference. Join us for unprecedented access to the stunning Princess Theatre and the stories within it, as it comes to life through history and song, culminating in a special intimate performance on stage, lit only by the ghostlight. 

Supported by Events Tasmania, City of Launceston and Theatre North.
