PLYMOUTH, N.H.The Educational Theatre Collaborative (ETC) will host its 15th annual production this year, and patrons and supporters are invited to help celebrate.

Each January for the past 14 years, ETC has dazzled audiences with memorable performances of well-known musicals like Peter Pan, The Sound of Music and Beauty and the Beast; and debut performances of original works and adaptations like Frindle, Pollyanna, Ananse the Spider Man and Mail to the Chief.

The 15th production, The Wizard of Oz, will take the audience over the rainbow and back, as more than 125 cast members from 30 towns perform January 21-25 the Silver Center in Plymouth and February 6 and 7 at Capitol Center for the Arts in Concord.

To honor this landmark year, the public is invited to a reception and celebration from
5-7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 10, at the Common Man Inn in Plymouth

PSU Dean of Students Tim Keefe, who has performed in every ETC production to date, will host a retrospective of songs and memories provided by past ETC players.

The program also includes a brief look back at the history of ETC, and acknowledgment of the founders, PSU Professors Trish Lindberg and Dan Perkins, and the three organizations that came together to support the effort – Plymouth State University, Plymouth Elementary School and Friends of the Arts.
