Island ETC Celebrates 15 Years!

Island ETC (East-End Theatre Company) invites you to come help us celebrate our 15th seasons with a fun and music filled celebration on Friday, December 15th and Saturday, December 16th

Although we are not completely back to our pre-Harvey normal, we are ready to celebrate our 15th anniversary with two special performances - MAGIC & MEMORIES II.  Tom Schwenk, Galveston Real Estate, graciously and generously sponsors this special event.  Both evenings include champagne and sweet treats donated by some of Galveston's finest bakeries and restaurants. 

We have gathered together twenty of your favorite ETC performers and chosen a variety of our favorite past musical numbers for your entertainment pleasure.  These fine actor/singers have been seen on stage extensively over our last five years, and we have a couple of ETC's original company members joining them to create this wonderful evening of song and sweet treats.

The evenings both begin at 7:30pm with our champagne celebration.  Curtain for our remarkable production will be at 8:00pm.  An extended intermission will include more champagne (or nonalcoholic beverages) and desserts from several of Galveston's best including:  Ile Petite Bakery (Trayce Hepler); Patty Cakes Bakery (Patricia and Steve Rennick), The Tremont House, Hotel Galvez and The Harbor House - just to name a few.  (Who knows - there may even be some actors mingling around!)  And what anniversary/birthday party is complete without a birthday cake?  Our delicious MAGIC & MEMORIES cakes are created and donated by Galveston College Culinary Arts (Paul Mendoza).

Our production will be emceed by ETC founding company member Kevin Daugherty reprising one of his most famous ETC's roles  (think - Cabaret).  Singing and dancing throughout the evening will be Calvin Brown, Tate Burchfield, Trent Burchfield, John Carraro, Kyle Crawford, Melanie Clinkscales, Katherine Cunningham, Cameron Dunbar, Daniel Edwards, Kaylee Fortune, Justin Gonzalez, Hanna Harper, Katie Harrison, Tara Jones, Caitlyn Mytelka, Matt Poole, Robin Schaefer, Taelon Stonecipher, and Patty Talley.  Kim Mytelka directs the show with choreography by Jennifer Daugherty and musical direction by Eduardo Guzman.

"I am absolutely thrilled that these amazing and talented people have agreed to be a part of this show.  It will be the first time that this group has all performed together.  They are all some of the best the Houston/Galveston has to offer, and I think the show will be as much fun for them as it will be for our audiences," says Mytelka.

Both performances will be held at Island ETC, 2317 Mechanic in Galveston.  Tickets are $35.00 each and may be purchased online at For additional information about MAGIC & MEMORIES II or ETC, please visit our website or call the box office at 409-762-3556.
