Let's start at the very beginning...

the encore story

In 2006, a group of actors, musicians, educators, and theatre artists came together to discuss the state of performing arts in the Lakeway Area.   We began to identify the need for a reputable performing arts company that would provide quality entertainment and arts education for audiences and artists alike.  We set out to improve the quality of life in our community, to produce exciting plays and musicals, and to promote the performing arts in our region.  

 

Our founding company members sought out community leaders and business executives who identified the importance of our quality of life.   Through the generous support of our founding patrons, corporate sponsors, trustees and company members, Encore Theatrical Company was incorporated in the fall of 2006.   We spent months preparing and planning, forming a business plan, gathering community support, and planning our kickoff.  On December 17, 2006, we held a community party where we unveiled our new company.  

 

Our inaugural season begin in April of 2007 with our first production of Peter Pan.  With the generous support and partnership of Walters State Community College, we found a facility to produce our productions in the William H. Inman Humanities Theatre on the Morristown campus.  

Our Mission

Encore Theatrical Company believes in the power of the arts. Through live performances and educational programs, we will provide quality entertainment by creating opportunities for the artistic minds in our region to exercise, nurture, and grow their talents. By cultivating and promoting the performing arts, we will improve the quality of life in the Lakeway Area.
