How we Started
For those of you that don't know, the Scottish Rite is a organization that is part of the fraternity known as the Freemasons. New members are initiated into various organizations in the Fraternity through ritual known as a degrees. The form of the degrees change depending on the organization within the Fraternity (and there are many), but in the Scottish Rite the degrees take on the form of dramatic theatrical performances that discuss a lesson or a principle of the fraternity.
As a Scottish Rite member, preparing to perform a degree is similar to prepping for a regular stage production: line memorization, costumes, props, and tech rehearsals with lights and sound. A Scottish rite degree is only performed for new and current members and each degree takes anywhere from 15-30 minutes. Some of the members that had a calling for stagecraft decided to get together to undertake more ambitious projects which were open to the public and thus in 2015 Ghost Light was born.
