At the Eau Claire Children's Theatre

The Eau Claire Children’s Theatre (ECCT) works hard to provide an amazing experience for people of all ages in the Chippewa Valley as cast, crew, and audience members. The ECCT is truly a fixture in our community, and we are excited to be celebrating 30 years of bringing the arts to Western Wisconsin. So sit back and enjoy a show! We can’t wait to see you there.

Past Shows

It's hard to condense 30 years into one page, but below are some of our favorite shows and community events.

COMMUNITY IMPACT

We do so much more than just put on shows! We are a part of this community and enjoy sharing the arts with our friends and neighbors.

PERFORM SHOWS

We perform 15 shows every season. That means we always have two shows in production at any given time.

HOST EVENTS

We love to interact with the community that helped build us, and we do that through numerous events each year. From fashion shows and “Dancing with the EC Stars,” to fundraisers and trivia nights, we play host to some fabulous, Chippewa Valley events.

BUILD CONFIDENCE

We help children (and adults) build confidence in themselves and foster understanding and acceptance of others with differing backgrounds.

SHARE RESOURCES

We are happy to rent out our costume collections to other theatre troops! We also rent out the Oxford Theatre and ECCT spaces for private events, like weddings, birthday parties, and corporate shindigs.

TEACH CLASSES

We offer acting and tech classes to community members to develop and enhance skills that can be used throughout their lives.

BECOME FAMILY

At ECCT, many of our cast and crew members audition, volunteer, and perform time and time again. Their parents, siblings, and friends join in and over the years we’ve become one big family! We want to share the love, support, and success with you. Come join our theatre family!

THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS!

OUR MISSION

For 30 years our mission has been simple, provide quality theatrical and educational experiences for western Wisconsin residents of all ages. Through the help of volunteers and donors our non-profit organization has been able to commit itself to five areas of programming: nine mainstage productions consisting of major Broadway musicals and award-winning literary-based plays, education outreach classes, elementary school touring productions, high school improvisational team, and the school matinee program. We have become a staple in Chippewa Valley theatre, and are excited to see what the next 30 years will bring!
