After a second successful summer season, Emerald Coast Theatre Company continues its mission to provide art education to the Northwest Florida region with three after school/weekend opportunities this fall.

“Yes, Virginia The Musical”

This holiday season, ECTC will stage a performance of “Yes, Virginia The Musical,” an original production based on the true story of 8-year-old Virginia O’Hanlon, who wrote a letter to the New York Sun newspaper in 1897, inquiring about the existence of Santa Claus. Fourth through 12th graders are welcome to participate. This musical will be rehearsed and performed at the Destin Community Center.

Tuition is $195 per child, with a 20 percent discount extended for siblings and a 10 percent discount for both military and Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation members. Parents can provide a single payment or divide the fee into three payments. Space is limited.

Rehearsals are from 9-10:30 a.m. Saturdays beginning Sept. 6 and run through Dec. 6. The final performance will be at 11 a.m. Dec. 6.

“Alice in Wonderland”

Students grades two through four are invited to join the cast of the theatrical production “Alice in Wonderland.” Activities will include theater games, improvisation exercises, and rehearsals for the production. Family and friends will be invited to see the final production — complete with sets, props, and costumes pieces.
