Santa Barbara, CA – Ensemble Theatre Company (ETC) at the New Vic opens the 2016-17 season with William Shakespeare’s masterpiece of blind and bloody political ambition, Macbeth. Part of the global celebration of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, ETC’s production is set in a war-torn kingdom reeling from years of conflict, and will feature state-of-the-art digital projections, and an education partnership with London's Globe Education, part of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. The production runs September 29-October 16, and is Directed by Jonathan Fox.
Celebrating Executive Artistic Director Jonathan Fox’s 10 Year Anniversary!
On a glorious Santa Barbara evening in June, more than 140 members of Ensemble Theatre Company’s extended family celebrated “the first ten years” of Jonathan Fox as Executive Artistic Director. The celebration was held in the beautiful garden of Beth and Derek Westen where guests joined together to be reminded of the dramatic growth of ETC under Jonathan’s leadership. As one tribute writer put it, the event was “in appreciation of ten years of theater excellence…Theater, when imagined as a community dialogue, is a powerful ingredient of a civil society. You have provided us that…and much more.”
