A ghost light is an electric light that is left energized on the stage of a theater when the theater is unoccupied and would otherwise be completely dark. It typically consists of an exposed incandescent bulb, CFL lamp, or LED lamp mounted in a wire cage on a portable light standard. It is usually placed near center stage. Ghost lights are also sometimes known as equity lights or equity lamps, possibly indicating their use was originally mandated by the Actors' Equity Association.

  • Une servante est un accessoire de théâtre. C'est une lampe posée sur un haut pied qui reste allumée quand le théâtre est plongé dans le noir, déserté entre deux représentations ou répétitions. Régulière, permanente, c’est elle qui veille lorsqu’il n’y a plus personne. Cette veilleuse est parfois appelée sentinelle.En anglais, elle est nommée Ghost Lamp, en référence aux fantômes qui hantent le théâtre quand il se vide (notamment le lundi soir, jour de relâche, appelé Ghost Night). * Portail du théâtre Portail du théâtre (fr)

Ghost lights are also sometimes known as equity lights or equity lamps, possibly indicating their use was originally mandated by the Actors' Equity Association. The practical use of a ghost light is mainly for safety. A ghost light enables one to navigate the theater to find the lighting control console and to avoid accidents such as falling into the orchestra pit and stepping on or tripping over set pieces. Aside from its obvious practical purpose, there are a number of superstitions associated with the origin and purpose of ghost lights. (en)
