The Company was founded by eight seasoned practitioners hoping to bring lovers of theatre together in order to collaborate on major projects. The team members, many with professional credentials, will share their plans for productions spanning various genres at Arts Central, Norfolk House, Milton Keynes on September 24.
Chairman Shirley Jones said: “Milton Keynes is such a vibrant new town with a constantly expanding pool of artistic talent. Etc Theatre Company hopes to pull together not only those who want to act, sing and dance but also people who are creative in behind the scenes roles too.”
The group will be kicking off with a couple of large-scale household name productions interwoven with a variety of challenging smaller offerings.
Secretary John Drinkwater added: “Over the years to come we’d like to build a collaborative theatrical experience that provides opportunities for personal growth, stretches individuals and gives them a chance to work across the artistic disciplines where pertinent”.
