Reviews for Bay Area Educational Theater Company
My daughter just started and is having a great experience! What a welcoming organization to help children gain confidence and have lots of fun!
My family has done shows with e.T.c. for years. Aside from being a great learning experience for our daughter, it is a community that has been a big part of her life. Fun and a bonding experience for the entire family.
My daughter voiced interest in acting / theater 2 years ago. Since then, she has been in 3 productions and currently enrolled in her 4th eTC production. She LOVES eTc. The staff / volunteers are amazing and have a gift working with children. Our daughter loves the teamwork, spirit, roles and the positive encouragement. My husband and I are very thankful for the organization!
Our daughter has been with Bay Area eTc for many many years (she's on her 10th show now), and our younger daughter is now in her third show. We love the people who volunteer and work there, and always have a great time. Especially being on stage crew. :) Summer camps are great too!
My children have loved Bay Area ETC. They are a fantastic family theater company.
This company has been a wonderful experience for our whole family. We have shared so many laughs, met wonderful other families with like interests, and then best part is that it was all together as a family. I would highly recommend this theater company to anyone who would like to grow there confidence, wanting to be a part of a community, or who wants to have fun with a community show on top of connecting with your family in new and challenging ways.
This non-profit theatre company really emphasizes learning about all aspects of theatre in a nurturing environment. Kids are coached through auditions (and don't worry - everyone gets a part), learn about acting/singing/dancing and the whole family can participate in set making, costumes, etc. The company is very well-run, with great communication, professionals volunteering their time and lots of help to learn the ropes.
My daughter is a fixture with Bay Area e.T.c. We think the world of this organization. The staff is very professional, enthusiastic, fun, and the feeling they create is one of a giant family. As a parent of a participant, I volunteer regularly with a variety of tasks. Every member of the family has learned something about set-building, marketing, costume-making, lighting, load-in, strike, and oh- yes, TEAMWORK. This small, family-like non-profit is highly professional, dedicated, focused, and strongly committed to their goal. It is a pleasure to be part of their amazing energy and effort and to participate in the mission of providing outstanding theater experiences to the actors and high-quality shows to the public.
I have worked with this company for years and they have been wonderful. The program is unique in that it focuses on the educational side of theater while keeping things light and fun. I've seen shy children come into their own and go from chorus to lead within a year or two.
It's a great program and I recommend it to any family interested in theater.
We have two daughters involved with Bay area eTc. Our older daughter started in the summer camp program and knew theater was her passion right off. eTc has helped foster her love of theater, and she grows with every new experience that is offered, its been amazing to watch. Our younger daughter was painfully shy and her eTc experience has helped her grow into a more confident young person, ready to speak in front of her class or even school, I never thought we would get there, but eTc helped her get there. Can't say enough good things about our experiences with eTc the organization has become a second family for us.
