The Emerson Theater Collaborative’s mission is to serve youth, under-represented communities and artists with an emphasis on diversity, by producing innovative and exhilarating theater in Southeastern Connecticut. ETC explores timely themes and issues through new, original works and modern theatrical classics. We develop and nurture both emerging and professional artists, and collaborate.

Our goals include reaching inner city youth through educational theatrical programming, to support our local communities by providing free admission to our performances to low-income families and donating profits to humanitarian causes.
