Formed in 2010, EclecticPond Theatre Company (ETC) is a non-profit, touring company based in Indianapolis. ETC’s goal is to produce high-energy, fast-paced versions of Classical and Modern texts that link to the plays students are required to read and study.

Alongside these performances, we develop a curriculum of workshops, study guides and other materials to help facilitate a greater understanding of the texts, and for theatre as a means of communication.

In addition to performing at our home in historic Irvington, and other public venues across the state, we aim to bring our shows to your school, at a low cost to you, as a way of inspiring students to dive deeper into the world of theatre – and to promote and encourage a lifelong love and appetite for it.

If your school is unable to bring us to you, but you still want to recommend our shows to your students – and to take advantage of our interactive programs – please see our ‘Edu & Touring’ page for details on educational discounts currently being offered, and to view our available curriculum support packets to accompany the shows.




EclecticPond is proud to be a member of The Shakespeare Theatre Association (STA).  For more information visit
