The Elite Theatre Company

The Elite Theatre Company (ETC) has been entertaining, educating and enriching its audience since 1994. After 19 seasons at the Petit Playhouse in Oxnard’s Historic Heritage Square, ETC moved to present, larger venue at Channel Islands Harbor Fisherman’s Wharf at the site of the old Maritime Museum, a facility that will elevate ETC’s ability to produce the highest quality theater in Ventura County on its Main and South stages.

ETC brings together the local talents of amateurs and professionals who share a passion for theater and who generously volunteer their time on the stage and behind the scenes. This collaboration creates a variety of quality live theatrical productions showcased in our unique setting.

The Elite Theatre is proud to give playwrights this unique opportunity to have their unpublished plays produced on our Etcetera stage. The Elite also hosts free staged readings , where local playwrights preview their works for audiences who provide invaluable feedback. Our complete season (The Elite Series) includes 5 or more main stage productions. Our annual Youth Production, classes, workshops and special one-night-only events fill the year with exciting education and entertainment. On our ETCetera (South) Stage, we premiere new works, and plays that work best in a more intimate space in addition to our Open Mic Nights, Spoken Word Events and more. 

 The Elite Theatre Company is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization as well as a proud member of the Four Star Theater Awards Committee and the alliance of Ventura County Theaters.
