New theatre group Etc is holding its interactive launch event on September 24, and is keen on your input.

The company has been founded to bring lovers of theatre together to collaborate on major projects, and with Milton Keynes celebrating its 50th birthday in 2017, there is plenty to get stuck into!

The team members will share their plans for products spanning various genres at Norfolk House - the new Arts Central base - on Thursday, September 24.

"Milton Keynes is such a vibrant new town with a constantly expanding pool of artistic talent," said chairman Shirley Jones.

"Etc Theatre Company hopes to pull together not only those who want to act, sing and dance but also people who are creative in behind the scenes roles too."

Secretary John Drinkwater added: "Over the years to come we'd like to build a collaborative theatrical experience that provides opportunities for personal growth, stretches individuals and gives them a chance to work across the artistic disciplines where pertinent."

Interested in finding out more? The launch event will begin at 7.30pm.  All are invited.
