Let us know. Performance level participants please PM Director Noël Ramos on FB or send inquiry via email to wpaatv@gmail.com subject BE A Light or just show up Jan 19th 5 PM at wpaatv and we will incorporate you into the community event as feels right for the gathered.

Nationally: Gathering outside of theaters on the eve of the Presidential Inauguration, people will join in a collective, simultaneous action, together creating “light” for challenging times ahead. Inspired by the tradition of leaving a "ghost light" on in a darkened theater, these artists and communities will make a pledge to continued vigilance and increased advocacy with an ongoing commitment to work for social justice and equity in the coming years,serving these principles.

  • - Safety of persons, regardless of race, class, religion, gender, or sexual orientation.
  • - Diverse opinions, dissent, and argument are not only tolerated, but invited.
  • - Active listening and courageous exchange are fundamental values.
  • - Collective action, activism, and community engagement, both within and outside the walls of the theater, are cultivated, encouraged, and supported
