The Encore Theater Company (ETC) at Randolph Union High School performs two (and sometimes three) full length plays every year. Open to all students, the company performs comedies, dramas, musicals, and more to the delight and appreciation of community members from throughout Central Vermont.
Students who are new to drama but interested in leaning more are welcome and encouraged to join the troupe, and are often assigned walk-on roles to give them a taste of and feel for acting on stage. Others choose to pursue opportunities for collaboration within the lighting, sound, and technical crew. Any academically eligible student is welcome to join the program, and more than 40 students choose to do so each year.
ETC members attend Vermont State Drama Festival (which is often hosted at RUHS), where schools from throughout the state present one-act plays and compete for prizes and awards. An annual trip to New York City to attend a professional performance and an end-of-the-year Induction and Recognition night cap the ETC season.
Volunteers are needed throughout the season and the company welcomes any and all who wish to help create costumes, build and paint scenery, sell tickets, and provide refreshments for rehearsals and intermission sales.
