Encore Theatre Company exists to teach young people about theatre by allowing them to DO theatre. Our casts are made up of kids in the lead roles. Occasionally we have to use adults in a few roles, but the kids are the STARS!
ETC does two productions a year, fall and spring, with auditions/signups held in January and August.
Rehearsals are typically two afternoons per week for 60 to 90 minutes each. Saturday rehearsals/parent work days are added as we get closer to opening night.
ETC is a tuition-based theatre education program. This means we charge a fee for participation and use that funding to teach acting skills in our classes/rehearsals which culminate in the performance of a published script. Your tuition covers teacher salaries, publisher's royalties and license fees, and the purchase of scripts, music, and materials for costumes, props and sets.
Parents have a role, too! Parents are asked to participate in set-building, costume-making, back-stage monitoring, concessions and ticket sales. We can't do it without our parents!
Summer Camps are also available whether you just want to see if theatre is for you or you just can't get enough during our regular classes. Check our Summer Programs tab to see what we are offering this Summer!
