Join us as we bring together members of the community to read holiday plays in support of Niagara’s Essential Theatre, ECT!

We welcome and encourage anyone – whether you’ve never acted before, or are a seasoned professional – to come together with ECT and continue to build vibrant culture in your community.

There are 3 ways to participate:

1 — Register to Read:  you’ll choose a 20 minute time slot in our 8-hour marathon where you’ll be front and centre participating in a reading with some of our volunteer fillers, or put together your own group.  All you’ll need is a minimum $50 of pledges to participate (tax deductible to donors)!  There will be prizes for most pledges/donations, most social media sharing and hype, as well as most likely and unlikely to be cast in the part.  It’s all fun!

2 — Give: if you’re unable to participate as a reader, or just want to come down and be an audience member, you can support ECT by giving a tax deductible donation of any amount!  The “Play Day 12 Days of Giving” starts December 10th and ends December 21st!  You can give in support of a registered reader participating in the event, or to ECT as a general supporter!  With our thanks… please go to our Fundraising Page to give, and be sure to let us know who you’re giving in support of!

3 — Share: tell your friends about Essential Collective Theatre, the Play Day 12 Days of Giving, and direct them to our social media or website.  Help us spread the word!!

Help us reach our goal of $2500!
