The House of Delegates has honored the 20th anniversary of Educational Theatre Company, an Arlington-based non-profit that serves 7,000 students of all ages across the region.
The troupe “trains elementary-school students in writing, performing and designing their own plays” while also offering summer camps and a Shakespeare in the Schools initiative, noted the resolution, patroned by Del. Alfonso Lopez (D-49th).
Educational Theatre Company also runs specialized programming, such as the Devising Hope initiative, which pairs high-school students with men and women who are experiencing homelessness to share their stories and create performance pieces.
The organization celebrated its anniversary during a special event last November.
