South Coast Theater Company Planning To Welcome Back Live Audiences

Ensemble Theater Company annouces five show season

A South Coast theater company has announced plans for its first live, in person season since the pandemic hit. Santa Barbara’s Ensemble Theater Company will stage five productions starting in October.

Among the offerings is “Tenderly,” a musical about singer Rosemary Clooney. During the holidays, ETC will stage “The Wickhams,” a production based on some of Jane Austen’s most beloved characters.

There’s also “American Son,” a play which takes on the tough issue of racism and the police.

The more than four decade old non-profit is Santa Barbara’s only professional theater company.
