Mission:
Electric Theatre Company is dedicated to the presentation of professional theatre artists in top-quality productions of both new and established work. Believing that live theatre provides a uniquely vital, thought-provoking, and stimulating examination of the human condition — entertainment that is food for the soul — the artistic leadership is also dedicated to introducing the rewards and pleasures of living theatre to as diverse an audience as possible throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania. These efforts include providing educational outreach programs, fostering theatrical innovation, and introducing dynamic and original work to our audiences.
Results:
Audience are growing. Classes in Griffin Conservatory are strong, but don't often enroll. Out on a Limb, the theatre lab of Griffin Conservatory, is vital and usually well attended. In Bocca al Lupo, the study abroad opportunity in commedia dell'arte and Italian language, enrolled in 2006 and 2009, and in 2007 and 2008 ETC sent commedia based work to international theatre festivals in Italy. The Portal Projects with Marywood develop and deepen each season. Student matinees are increasingly well attended, and the supporting study guides are excellent.
