ECT Membership Overview


The Conservatory Theatre Model

ECT adheres to a Conservatory Theatre model - focused on growth, risk and attempt. People are not hired simply for what they have done, but rather what they can do. We double-down on an artist's dedication to craft as a means to unlock our Ideal Artists.

 

ECT approaches the rehearsal and production process as Explorers and Adventurers – members must exhibit a genuine hunger to grow - eager to access the deepest levels of creative fearlessness! We expect a generosity of spirit from our artists filled with humility and a focus on collaboration. The professionals of the mainstage represent the highest standards of collaboration and preparation, utilizing their craft and work ethic to inspire Conservatory students - and each other - to even higher levels of working fearlessly with personal, professional pride.

How Membership Works

Membership comes with varying levels of contributions and benefits based on an artist's goals for their time at ECT. 

 

Resident Artists hunger to contribute to ECT's culture and grow their personal craft at the highest levels. RAs are expected to teach in our Fall, Spring, and Summer Conservatory programs (6 classes each), contribute 100 company hours to ECT over the calendar year and to make three artistic contributions to the season's mainstage and conservatory productions.

 

Company Members represent Elysium's Founding Principles of Hunger To Grow, Generosity of Spirit and Personal, Professional Pride. They contribute to the season through two artistic contributions, 75 company hours and by teaching one workshop class each conservatory. CMs like RAs are always welcomed back after a successfully completed season. 

 

Guest Artists join ECT on a per show basis, dedicated to the ECT culture of fearless artistic expression. GAs are required to attend two classes (2-hrs each) over their time at ECT. All season artists strengthen ECT's community by contributing outside the rehearsal room to ECT's community growth (by attending events), location expansion (through projects that care for our artistic home) and various technical and administrative tasks. These Company Hours deepen community, broaden our potential - and leave all members with an inspired sense of ownership in our season's success.
