Welcome to ETC!
Educational Theatre Company
Changing Life Through the Arts
(during the voiceover, there are photos scrolling of various ETC participants ranging in age from 3-103 - the breaks in text identify when the image changes)
Educational Theatre Company, or ETC, provides
process-driven, student-written theatre education
for ages 3-103 throughout the DC Metro Area.
In our mission of changing lives through the arts,
ETC works to help all of our participants tell their own
stories and amplify their own voices. ETC is
very specifically not the education branch of a larger
theatre company – educational theatre is all we do!
We meet our students WHERE they are – at schools,
community centers, senior living homes, and
most recently online! – to eliminate the transportation
barrier so often found in high-quality theatre education.
From our ETC Beginnings program for preschoolers to our
Creative Age program for Senior Citizens, ETC continues to
build confidence, creativity, and collaboration
throughout our communities.
Donations from the CFC allow us to offer scholarships
to all of our programming and provide programming
free of charge to Title 1 schools and men and women
who are or have recently experienced homelessness.
