Reviews for EMERSON THEATER COLLABORATIVE INC

Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review

Camilla Ross, President of Emerson Theater Collaborative, invited me to bring my one-woman multimedia production, "Beatrix Potter and Peter Rabbit," to Mystic, Connecticut in September 2012. My play was embraced by the professionalism of ETC. Their lighting of my show along with set suggestions, greatly improved my show. What meant the most was the sincere encouragement given me as a late blooming artist from Emerson College.

I have attended productions of Emerson Theatre Collaborative Inc. I am so impressed with the acting and the subject matter. I was thrilled to learn of the reading of the work of Zora Neale Hurston. The area can benefit from this artistic work. Camilla and her group is doing a wonderful job and I support their fully and would like to see ETC grow. Lottie B. Scott

I played the role of "Ginny" in the phenomenal play by Jeffrey Sweet, "Court Martial at Fort Devens," produced and directed by the Emerson Theater Collaborative (ETC) in the Spring of 2012. I got the chance to meet and perform for the playwright, Jeffrey Sweet, and it was all because of ETC!!! That was my first experience meeting and performing for a playwright. Throughout the production, I felt at home with ETC and was embraced as family. In fact, ETC is a family! All the elements that make up theatre is carefully crafted by ETC members from the set (designed and constructed by ETC) to the costume and lighting. ETC is composed of a group of dedicated professionals who give themselves to the task of putting together thought-provoking and meaningful plays that touch the soul. "Court Martial at Fort Devens" was one of these plays. It was a pleasure working with the Emerson Theater Collaborative!!!!

I had an amazing time working with ETC. They are a wonderful organization and a pleasure to work with. I learned so much about myself and grew as an Artist as well as fellowshipped with other amazing people. They are very professional as well as organized and they treat you as family. My experience was a wonderful one that I will forever cherish.

ETC is a stella organization. It has grown over the past few years into a driving force in the local theater community. ETC not only produces cutting edge shows but encourages actors to develop their love and passion for acting. I am proud to serve on this board.

I think the work ETC is doing is courageous, thoughtful and creative. They have the best after show talkbacks and discussions. They really make an effort to move their audience and to encourage and inspire a conversation about what took place on the stage, and what the audience feels about it. They do socially relevant plays that make a statement about the society we live in, and go to the trouble of making sure they have an impact on their audiences. They employ wonderful talent and provide opportunities for creative professionals to express themselves. They give emerging talent a chance to see their work and further develop as artists. This is an organization that is really worth supporting, they make the community they live in and the world a much better place by making a very big effort. I wish there were more theatre companies like them. Keep up the good work ETC!

Working on a shoe-string budget and effectively mobilizing their volunteer base, Emerson Theater Collaborative has managed to pull off a myriad of daunting production challenges including many world premieres. Added bonus, their work helps raise funds and awareness about partnering organizations. ETC's commitment to serving youth is impressive, too. A great theater to support!

Great organization! My daughter was in The Big Bank show. This organization is well organized and being part of a show with them is a ton of fun. They put out the most incredible shows in these small venues. Truly a delight!!
