Emerald Coast Theatre Company (ECTC) launches the second annual Northwest Florida Theatre Festival, May 16-28, 2018. When ECTC producing artistic director Nathanael Fisher concepted the Northwest Florida Theatre Festival last year, it was to provide a “stage” - literally and figuratively - for local artists in the community. The Festival will be produced in concert with the Cultural Arts Alliance’s Art Week South Walton. Northwest Florida Theatre Festival is a stage for all.

“I believe that art breeds art. Our mission is to unify the theater and performing arts groups of Northwest Florida and showcase the talent, work, and productions of numerous organizations and people,” said Fisher.

The unjuried theater festival will feature 14 unique pieces of theater including one act plays, cabaret, magic, dance, comedy and more. Producing groups come from Pensacola to Panama City. Most pieces will be staged twice for a total of 23 performances.

The Northwest Florida Theatre Festival is open to the public and will be held at ECTC’s performance space located at 560 Grand Boulevard, Upstairs, in Grand Boulevard at Sandestin in Miramar Beach, Florida.
