ETC: English Theatre Company is a professional touring theatre company; with over 25 years experience offering original English language plays to students of English of all ages and levels: for primary; secondary; high school and adult learners.
We aim to provide an enjoyable and rewarding theatre in English that is artistically, linguistically and thematically appropriate to the age of our audience.
We are constantly aware that in any one performance we always have two audiences; the students who want to enjoy themselves and the teachers who want the event to be educationally worthwhile.
Our actors are all professional native speaking actors and are trained to adapt and vary their performance according to the audiences’ reactions.
The plays are prepared to last approximately 50 minutes to one hour. The exact running time depends upon the audience as our theatre is interactive.
Our performances are designed to be adaptable to any venue. All we require is an acting area in a space that is adequate to the size of the audience where they can be seated comfortably and see and hear the actors.
Each play comes with its own resource pack, which contains preparation material to use before the performance as well as follow-up work for afterwards.
ETC has written and produced 45 original plays, which have been seen so far by over 2,000,000 people in over 15,000 performances throughout Europe.
