“We invite everyone on the Emerald Coast to come join us for breakfast,” says ECTC producing artistic director Nathanael Fisher. “This is a great opportunity to mix and mingle with our talented Educational Staff, ask questions of us and learn more about our Theatre Education programs and offerings planned for the 2017-2018 school year, while enjoying delicious food and great company.”
Following the open house breakfast, ECTC will bestow its annual ECTC Educational Program Awards to thespians who participated in ECTC’s Fall 2016, Spring 2017 and Summer 2017 programs.

“This awards ceremony is our turn to honor and thank the dedicated young people who pour their hearts and souls into each and every performance,” says Fisher. “I am humbled and inspired by all that these kids accomplish each season, and this is our way of letting them know just how much we admire and appreciate them.”
