Flashback With EPAC
This week, we’ll flashback with the Endicott Performing Arts Center as they are doing their own flashback production featuring beloved classics.
The COVID-19 Pandemic is forcing many entertainment venues to either close, or becoming incredibly inventive, and the latter is the case for EPAC.
The Endicott Performing Arts Center is going digital, with a company production from the archives, and each Friday EPAC digital will feature a familiar classic release.
The first popular production will be Annie, and in the coming weeks Cabaret, Little Shop Of Horrors, Spamalot, Shrek, and more classic productions.
The venue, now known as the Robert Eckert Theater, was built in 1917 and was the location for many of the Vaudeville acts of the early 20th Century, and later featured silent movies, transitioning into the modern-day movies, under the name Towne Theater.
The movie theater closed in the early 1990’s, and was later purchased and restored, as a theater for the performing arts.
Before the Covid-19 Pandemic, the theater housed several activities, including a Children’s workshop, and a Teen workshop, along with several presentations from Shakespeare, Burlesque, The Nutcracker, and more.
Endicott Performing Arts Center / Robert Eckert Theater, is located at 102 Washington Ave, Endicott NY, for information call 607 785 8903, or log on to endicottarts.com
