A gathering of theatre students came together at Emerald Coast Theatre Company (ECTC) to celebrate the close of their 11th Season. On Saturday, May 11, 2024 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., ECTC invited their students to a Jr Thespians Induction and End of Season celebration to commemorate the end of a fruitful season of children’s educational theatre. This event allowed ECTC’s students and parents to come together with food and fellowship for middle school level Jr Thespians, as well as their high school aged Teen Company counterparts.

The ceremony began with the induction of new Jr Thespians members who earned their points during the season and concluded with the recognition of all the Jr Thespians’ hard work and dedication to the education program. The 2024 Inductees included: Ashlynn Aigret, Campbell Carter, Alice Heller, John Kerrigan, Maggie Kerrigan, and Noah Modinger. They were joined by their fellow Jr Thespians: Lucca Bucalo, Hailey Estrada, Jordyn Fowler, Jenna King, Mackenzie Krout, Clara Petersik, and Preston Smith.

In partnership with the Seaside Neighborhood School, ECTC’s Junior Thespian Troupe (No. 89447) is a part of District 10 and a chartered member of the Educational Theatre Association’s Junior Thespians.
