Main Stage Residency

Begun in 1999 with a production of Bottom's Dream, a bilingual Spanish/English adaptation of A Midsummer Night's Dream, ETC Main Stage works with elementary, middle and high school students to create original plays and musicals based on classic works of literature and drama. During an intensive eight or nine week residency, students work with ETC's professional Teaching Artists to develp the script, compose song lyrics, design and create costumes, props and other scenic elements. During the last three weeks of the residency, students begin a professional rehearsal process culminating in a performance for their community.
