A Spotlight on the Exceptional Theater Company
Lights! Camera! Action! The spotlight is on the Exceptional Theater Company , (ETC) a unique 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, designed to teach theatre to individuals of all ages with physical and/or intellectual disabilities. The Exceptional Theater Company continues to grow throughout Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties, with over 20 drama classes and a summer program in Asheville, North Carolina. Most of the classes meet once a week during the academic school year and are designed to teach theatrical skills with fun exercises that promote verbal skills, movement, self-confidence and socialization while encouraging free thinking and creativity. The actors and volunteers work hard all year to develop the themes, scripts, costumes and props for their performances. ETC presents an unforgettable annual benefit show that includes a live performance by the actors, a family style catered dinner, raffles and silent and live auctions.
