Our Mission

Emerson Theater Collaborative serves youth, community and artists with an emphasis on diversity by producing innovative and exhilarating theater in Southeastern Connecticut.

By exploring timely themes and issues through original works and modern theatrical classics, ETC develops and nurtures emerging and professional artists by collaborating with the Emerson College Network of alumni and students.


Use the exciting, proven learning tool of live theater to engage your students. With Emerson Theater Collaborative, Harriet Tubman, Harriet Beecher Stowe and Charles Dickens step out of books and come to life right in your classrooms or assembly hall. Kids love it and history lessons stick!

Theater Alive!

"ETC proves that the theater experience is alive and well for both audiences and actors, and the performances here consistently demonstrate a need for dialogue and thinking about our place in this world. Thank you, Camilla and team, for your hard work, dedication and positive energy!” Elle J. - Lyricist, Actress and Affirmative Action Officer, New York, NY, and Stonington, CT
