The GhostLight Theatre

PO BOX 244, Benton Harbor, 49023 (directions)


Our Vision

The GhostLight Theatre is a new theatre performance venue in the Benton Harbor Arts District that seeks to illuminate the arts and culture of the area. We will create events where children and adults are more than observers, and become active participants in creation and exploration of a variety of performance media.


Our Story

The brainchild of tenor Paul Mow, The GhostLight Theatre is a collaboration of local performing artists, business people, arts supporters, and enthusiastic audience members. For years, Paul had his dream of a community-based theater and, when he partnered with Martha Hesse, the dream took form. In January 2018, we leased a building in the Benton Harbor Arts District, and began plans for creating a “black box” style theater, backstage and workshop areas, two offices and a beautiful front lobby. Watch for our opening in May 2019!



While we are working on our remodeling, choosing a season of productions for 2019-2020, and putting all the right people in place, we continue to offer a variety of entertainment opportunities in the area. Check out our Productions page and our Events page for details.


Meet the Team

Founders Paul Mow and Martha Hesse are pleased to be joined by this dynamic group of people who share the dream.
