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 Dec. 4!

Auditions for the Spring ETC Performance are on Wednesday, December 4th! See packet for details.

We are also looking for parents to help with Auditions for an hour or two. Please let Stephanie know if you are interested and have completed the McKinley volunteer process.

Thanks to Stephanie Dickerson and all her hard work in making ETC’s 2019 Fall production of Gulliver’s Travels a huge success!

ETC Drama Days

In addition to the two productions, ETC offers Drama Days during fall and spring parent/teacher conference days.

Students are guided through themed workshops in drama, movement, music, and visual arts. Students use their bodies, voices, and imaginations to tell a story through performance and art. The day is filled with improv games, workshops, outdoor time, and then rehearsal for the stage performance!
