OUR STORY

WHY WE STARTED ETC

In 1991, special education teacher Nanette Mikes came up with the idea to start a drama class for young adults with special needs, so that they would have a place to socialize after they graduated. The Quest Center in Hollywood was excited about the idea and agreed to house the 3-hour evening class. “The Drama Class for Adults with Special Needs” began with a mere 12 students that met once a week.

OUR CLASSES

The ETC drama class is designed to teach theatre to persons with physical and intellectual challenges. ETC creates opportunities for personal growth by teaching theatrical skills of expression.

Each individual class provides a setting for inclusion with the involvment of members of the community as volunteers, mostly high school students, receiving community service hours. The volunteers, also known as Shadows, work with the special needs students on and off the stage.
