Education Theatre Programming Performances

 Emerald Coast Theatre Company’s High School theatre program presents The Edgar Allan Poe Afterlife Radio Show on Friday, October 28th, 7:30 pm and Saturday, October 29th, 2:30 pm. A tap at a chamber door and the beat of a hideous heart evoke the very best and creepiest of Edgar Allan Poe. So when Poe sets out to keep his stories alive from beyond the grave, an otherworldly radio studio proves just the thing. Wandering spirits gather to play the roles in Poe’s most classic works, from “The Cask of the Amontillado” to “The Fall of the House of Usher.” The production will feature the talents of Walker Rivard, Mattie Livingston, Savannah Herndon, Alexander Koehler, Carly Parker, Alexa Whitten, Ethan Craig, Olivia Volquartsen, Jaydin Baine, and Selah Metzger. Tickets are $12 – $18 and available at emeraldcoasttheatre.org.

About the ECTC Jr. Company: The ECTC Jr. Company is an opportunity for high school students 9th-12th to continue their theatrical education. Members of the company have the opportunity to audition for several professional performance opportunities at ECTC as well as travel as a team to the Florida Theatre Conference for workshops and to audition for over fifty colleges, universities, and conservatories.
