The ETCetera Stage (formerly known as the “South Stage”) gives the Elite Theatre Company the flexibility to present “irregular” content without displacing productions from the Main Stage. From monthly “Open Mic” nights, special shows like the “Mexican Schools” spoken-word event and the Shakespeare Summer Camp performance , to regularly scheduled fully mounted productions, the ETCEtera Stage is a more intimate setting of just 45-seats with a “black box” environment.

On Sunday evenings in 2020, the ETCetera Stage will be the home of the Elite’s Theatre Conservatory.

2020[/21] Season

For 2020, two productions are currently slated for the ETCetera Stage. In May, ANDRONICUS by William Shakespeare and adapted and directed by Bill Walthall, will storm the stage. Then in September, Lee Blessing’s Eleemosynary will be directed by Aileen-Marie Scott.

UPDATE: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the extension of Ventura County’s “safer at home” order to May 15, the Elite Theatre Company is postponing the stage run of ANDRONICUS. The (almost) all-female production of Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus, adapted and directed by Bill Walthall, is now set to run on the ETCetera Stage from September 25 through October 18 on Friday and Saturday evenings at 8pm, and Sunday afternoons at 2pm.
The play previously announced for those run dates, Lee Blessing’s Eleemosynary, directed by Aileen-Marie Scott (who graciously offered up her run dates for ANDRONICUS), is now set for a spring 2021 run.
