Educational Theatre Company

Changing lives through the arts

The Educational Theatre Company (“ETC”) has partnered with McKinley for more than 15 years, providing students with the experience of the performance stage.

Each school year, ETC works with McKinley 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.

Spring Production Auditions on Monday, January 25th!

Auditions for the Spring VIRTUAL ETC Performance are on Monday, January 25 9am-1pm on Microsoft Teams See packet for details.

After a successful fall production of Royal Ribbit (check out a video of the fall production here) we are happy to announce the spring Educational Theatre Company (ETC) production of Adventures in Cyberland!  All 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders are invited to audition.  Auditions will be Monday, January 25 from 9am-1pm (by grade level). Parents must fill out the Audition Form for their grade AND sign up for an audition slot on the Sign Up Genius by Thursday, January 21. Rehearsals will run February 3-April 15 on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons from 4-5:45pm. Please talk to your child/ren about trying out– it is a wonderful winter activity that allows them to be active and creative. If your child is interested, follow these steps:
1. Review the schedule to ensure you are comfortable with the timing and commitment involved.
2. Fill out the appropriate Audition Form below for your student’s grade level.
3. Use the Sign-Up Genius link to select a spot in your grade-range.
