Quilla December 19, 8:00 pm
The Ghostlight Concerts with Quilla and Molly McGinn and friends
Ghostlights are a tradition almost as old as theatre itself – they light the stages when there are no performers, keeping the spirit of the theatre alive. After six months of just our ghostlight, we are thrilled to replace it with live performances on the Carolina Theatre stage! Seating will be available, but will be limited to 25 guests for each show, per government mandates. All guests will be asked to sign a liability waiver, and wear a face covering unless seated in the Auditorium.
Tickets are $20 plus 6.75% NC Sales tax.
Tickets include one admission, one concessions item and one beverage.
Sorry, draft beer and popcorn not currently available.

Quilla – the moniker of Montreal-born Anna Luisa Daigneault – is an electronic music producer, vocalist, songwriter and educator based in Greensboro, North Carolina. She is known for her ethereal soundscapes, hypnotizing beats and vocal loop compositions, as well as for teaching music production workshops for women. She was a featured vocalist on hit dance tracks released by Universal, Revealed Recordings, Armada, Vicious, and Ministry of Sound. Her third album, The Handbook of Vivid Moments, was released in September 2020 to critical acclaim. Quilla will perform all the tracks from her new album, including guest violinist Kate Tobey on several songs.
Quilla and Americana artist Molly McGinn will also play a set together in this performance. Known for their electronic folk track “Wild and Kind” (Ritual Fire Records, 2016), the duo will unveil a new collaborative piece entitled “All Ye Outs” for this Ghostlight Series concert.

Molly McGinn and friends will open the evening with their signature style of jazz-infused Americana. The band includes notable North Carolina artists such as sacred steel player DeShawn Hickman; musician and producer Sam Fribush on keys, a special appearance on drums by world-renowned jazz artist Charlie Hunter, as well as producer and bassist extraordinaire Alex Bingham. They deliver a beautiful blend of story-telling, soul influences and original songs by Molly McGinn.

What you need to know before your visit to the Carolina Theatre
Please bring your mask/face covering as it is required to wear unless you are seated in the Auditorium. We will have complimentary disposable masks available if needed.
The front doors will open 30 minutes prior to scheduled curtain time. Please bring your email receipt for entry, and your Waiver of Liability with you. This is not a public performance so only ticketed guests will be allowed in, and there will not be any walk-up sales. But don’t worry, we will have a list of those who have purchased tickets if you leave your email/receipt at home.
Staff will greet you inside the Lobby doors (with face coverings). Temperatures may be taken at this time. You will be given a drink coupon (or coupons if you have pre-purchased additional beverages). Our staff will assist you with your beverage and concessions selections. We will have a variety of bottled beer, wine, soft drinks, tea and water, as well as an array of candy. Unfortunately, popcorn will not be available.
Please maintain social distancing at all times. This is a general admission show, and with only 25 tickets available and over 700 seats downstairs to choose from, we will not be blocking off seats, but we do require you to leave two empty rows and at least three empty seats between parties. Staff will be available for any seating questions.
Remember to use one of the many hand sanitizing stations throughout the Theater. They are there for your safety and convenience.
This event is being videotaped for rebroadcast at a later date. Your entry acknowledges your consent to use your image should it be captured on video during the performance.
