It's our deep dish Chicago-style Harold - 3 different stories woven around a couple of our classic games, smothered in funny, and served up with Crestwood's delicious pastries and sandwiches! Wash down the hilarity with one of their hot or cold coffee beverages, or perhaps a beer or glass of wine. Don't miss the caffeinated comedy!

ETC presents
Holiday 'Splosion!

This show will be in The Martha Moore Sykes Studio at the historic Virginia Samford Theatre.
Need more info? Check out their venue page!
Tickets are $15 for adults or $12 for students - online or at the door!

Remember when the TV networks would give some star of the day a brightly lit Christmas wonderland and 18 guest stars for a spectacle known reverently as the Christmas Special? The ETC cast is bringing back this cheesy tradition of goofy sketches, holiday songs, and some visits from some unexpected (and possibly uninvited!) guests. Sit back and enjoy our salute to the variety shows of yore - and maybe even win a prize!

From the ETC Vault: watch Chris, Debbie, and Mike put a very Canadian spin on
the Fourth of July - each time faster than the last!
