Educational Theatre Company

Changing lives through the arts

The Educational Theatre Company (“ETC”) has partnered with Cardinal for more than 15 years, providing students with the experience of the performance stage.

Each school year, ETC works with Cardinal students on a fall and spring production. Students in grades 2-5 are invited to audition, and students in grade 5 also have the opportunity to apply for tech crew.

Auditions for the Fall ETC Production will be on Thursday, September 2, during the school day. See packet for details.

Auditions will be Thursday, September 2 during the school day; parents do not need to sign students up for audition slots. However, parents must fill out the Audition Form below for their child/rens’ grade(s) by September 1 at 5:00 pm. Rehearsals will run September 8-November 17 on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons from 3:45-5:30pm. Please talk to your child/ren about trying out– it is a wonderful activity that allows them to be active and creative.

If your child is interested, follow these steps:
1. Review the schedule to ensure you are comfortable with the timing and commitment involved.
2. Fill out the appropriate Audition Form below for your student’s grade level.
Please contact Stacy Leff, ETC Liaison at 240-305-5635 or with any questions.
