Tis the Season to be Grateful for … Live Entertainment!


Emerald Coast Theatre Company has plenty in store for theatre goers this month.

“We love the season of giving. What better way to show the ones you love you care than to enjoy an evening of family-friendly theater. We are proud of our talented ECTC theater kids. They are passionate and put their entire hearts into their efforts on stage as well as behind the scenes,” says Nathanael Fisher ECTC co-founder and producing artistic director.

First up, the Company will perform Annie Kids! ECTC’s Educational Theatre’s elementary students’ program will present one of Broadway’s most beloved family-friendly musical comedy classics; Friday, Nov. 6 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 7 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. at ECTC’s location at Grand Boulevard, Sandestin. The Company then takes the show to the Florida Chautauqua Theatre, in DeFuniak Springs Saturday, Nov. 21 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 22 at 2 p.m.

On Tuesday, November 17 ECTC’s new Professional Theatre Second Stage will present The Listening Lounge featuring Longleaf Drive. The performance starts at 7:30 p.m.

“We are thrilled to add an entirely new live series with The Listening Lounge,” says Fisher.
“Longleaf Drive has an old time, bluegrass band vibe, and they love to improvise, so you’ll hear some real Florida fresh pickin’. They are also known for playing many traditional tunes, as well as some classics, their song list ranges from the Grateful Dead to Jimmy Martin, with many stops between, and some originals to top it off. We invite everyone to come on out, kick back, enjoy a cold beverage and great local music. “

Tickets to The Listening Lounge are $22 for adults; $20 for seniors/military; $18 students.
