Show Dates

Ty, down on his luck and in need of some quick cash, attempts his first Home Invasion with the help of his girlfriend. However, he may have picked the wrong house as the home owners seem to be more knowledgeable in the art of guns and violence. Who is really in control of this crazy comedy? Join us once again for another world premiere from Elmira's very own award winning playwright.

Chris Grose
Actress: Nancy
Chris is an inaugural member of ETC who has participated in many “roles” community theatre has to offer – from props to president!  She has been on the ETC stage for sixteen shows - most recently playing Truvy in Steel Magnolias.  Other area theatre company stage performances include Elora Community Theatre, Theatre Guelph and Theatre in the Trees, Guelph. 
While family involvement in community theatre has many rewards, Chris says her most joyful role to date is Grammie – with co-star Papa Gord and their growing family! 
Many thanks to Mike for the opportunity to grow and play in his wonderful premiere show, alongside an amazing cast and crew!
