ECT Membership Overview

The Conservatory Theatre Model

ECT adheres to a Conservatory Theatre model - focused on growth, risk and attempt. People are not hired to play roles based on what they have done before, but rather what they can do when dedicating themselves to the Elysium aesthetic, culture and technique. We double-down on an artist's dedication to ECT's craft as a means to grow into their Ideal Artists.


ECT approaches the rehearsal and production process as Explorers and Adventurers – members exhibit a genuine hunger to grow - eager to access the deepest levels of creative fearlessness! We expect a generosity of spirit from our artists filled with humility and a focus on collaboration. The professionals of the mainstage represent the highest standards of collaboration and preparation, utilizing their craft and work ethic to inspire Conservatory students - and each other - to even higher levels of working fearlessly with personal, professional pride.

How Membership Works

Members are responsible for three fundamental area  of growth during their time at ECT: 


Artistic Growth ECT invests in an artist's untapped potential. Members join ECT to grow their fearless artistic expression and are selected based on a readiness to dedicate their time at ECT to growing in our aesthetic and process - applying these practices to mainstage roles and artistic growth outside the rehearsal room. ECT offers a mandatory weekend training retreat each season. ECT classes and workshops are always free to membership. 


Communal Growth Members are tasked with expanding and enhancing ECT's impact on the San Pedro community and strengthening our artistic ensemble by participating in one mandatory monthly event. The First Thursday of each month offers a Downtown San Pedro Arts Walk, where ECT members (from 7-8pm) mingle and meet our neighbors while experiencing the bustling creative energy of the many musicians, galleries and eclectic artistry on display. The latter half of the evening celebrates the fearless, artistic unknown during our First Thursday Cabaret Night (from 8-10pm), where ECT members, students, alumni and our surrounding community share poetry, songs, magic tricks ... and so much more!


Audience Growth ECT utilizes the talents, passions and company collaboration to bring our productions to life by contributing talent to the team - in costuming, lighting, sound, dance, etc. ECT expects all members to help increase our exposure, ensuring each performance is seen by the widest possible audience. These mainstage technical achievements and marketing campaigns deepen community, broaden our potential, and leave all members with an inspired sense of ownership in each show's success.
