We work in public schools, pre-schools, university classrooms, professional theaters, museums, and human service agencies with people of all ages and abilities. We have been called the “antidote” to the dropout rate.
In our artist-in-residence programs, students and teachers are immersed in the creative process of learning as they create and perform original works linked to their curriculum.
We expand the capacity of teachers to integrate the arts into virtually everything they teach as a means to engage all learners.
ECT works in partnership with area social service agencies, integrating the arts with family literacy and life skills, and developing socially relevant theater with young people.
We are a professional theater company. We create and perform original plays on historical, cultural and socially relevant themes designed to engage, educate, and capture the imagination of our audiences.
” ECT awakens our minds, our imaginations, our bodies in breathing life into our curriculum. It is such a rich and fertile experience to participate in an ECT workshop.”
