About What In The World?!

What in the world! We are living through the isolation caused by a global pandemic, and at the same time, people are uniting through protests against systemic racism. Learn how young people see and experience the trauma caused by these events. Through the art of theatre, you can hear their voices and how they plan to face these issues head-on,  act now, and change the world!

Emerson Theater Collaborative

The Emerson Theater Collaborative (ETC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to serve youth, under-represented communities and artists with an emphasis on diversity, by producing innovative and thought-provoking theater both in southeastern Connecticut and Sedona, Arizona.  

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 with the Emerson College network of alumni and students. Our goals include reaching youth through educational theatrical programming, supporting local communities by providing free admission to low-income families, and donating profits to humanitarian causes.  For more information, go to EmersonTheaterCollaborative.org.
