ETC is Cumberland's arts council, incorporated in 1990 as a nonprofit organization for the visual and performing arts. It is headquartered at the Cumberland Arts Center, a former Catholic church just north of downtown on Second Avenue, the community's main street. The building was given to ETC by the Ruppel family, and performances take place in the 120-seat Ruppel Family Theater. The all-volunteer organization derives its revenue from events, such as plays and concerts, from memberships and donations.

Students will be taught the art of storytelling in theater, how to express emotions, movement, and how to work as an ensemble. They will play games, create together, and dig into what theater is. Be sure to come with a memory you can share with the group that will be the story you will on the first day.
The final performance will consist of stories and skits that will have been created by the kids, complete with simple costumes and accents!
