Educational Theatre Company

The Educational Theatre Company (“ETC”) has partnered with McKinley for more than 10 years, providing McK students with the experience of the performance stage. Each school year, ETC works with McK students on a fall and spring production. Students in grades 2-5 are invited to audition, and students in grade 5 also have the opportunity to apply for tech crew. In addition to these two productions, ETC also offers ‘Drama Days’ during the fall and spring Parent/Teacher Conference days. Students may sign up to participate in these day-long theater workshops. Thank you ETC for this wonderful community partnership!

ETC Drama Day at McKinley

Friday, October 26, 2018

Theme: Superheroes and Masterminds

Drama Days offer a unique experience for students to participate in a day of the arts!  Professional teaching artists guide students through specialized workshops in drama, movement, music, and visual arts. All workshops are centered on the fun and educational theme of the day. Students will learn basic skills by using their bodies, voices, and imaginations to tell a story through performance and art. Our day is filled with improv games, workshops, outdoor time, and then rehearsal for the sharing on the stage!

Family and friends are invited to see an informal sharing of the students’ experiences of the day beginning at 2:40pm.
