Emerald Coast Theatre Company now serves over 12,000 patrons and children at our Grand Boulevard location. We would like to serve our community with excellence, and the consistent growth has created some needs. When we squeeze 200 children into the theatre for field trips it is a touching and exciting thing. But some of these children have challenges seeing the stage. We need risers for our audience. Currently we have 125 theatre chairs. The average school group we host is about 200 students. We also need new LED lighting to save on power and to light our stage. The sound system is lacking the appropriate speakers and we are still in need of more theatrical curtains. Finally, we are looking for additional computers, printers, wardrobe and prop storage, and a baby grand piano donation.
A total of $125,000 is needed to cover all of these expenses. Our goal is to have the money raised by May of 2019. Why May? That is when our Educational Program students will be performing Shrek Jr. the Musical and Disney’s Jungle Book Kids with over 200 families and friends in attendance. Also, in May, our Theatre for Young Audience program will be presenting The Wind in the Willows where we expect several field trips of 200 students. We hope to have all of the equipment in place by May to accommodate our growing community needs.
With any level of donation of $100 and up, your name or your honoree will be memorialized on our beautiful Giving Tree created by local artist Mary Hong. This piece of art will hang in our lobby as a thank you for your contribution in helping ECTC grow.
