The Jordan Guess Level
$2
per month

Named in memory of Jordan Guess, a regular member of our performing ensemble who our community lost to a drunk driver in 2014.  Jordan's memorable roles in Pillowman  and LaCage Aux Folles remind us why it is we do what it is we do.  Experiences that reach into the core of both the artist and the audience.  Jordan was in rehearsals for the world premier of Colonel Pilate by Aleksey Scherbak, translated by John Hanlon when he passed.  He is memorialized on the title page of Hanlon's translation and has been remembered through gifts and support from family and friends to help ETC scholarship youth into classes, camps and performances.

The Bruce Shaw Level
$5
per month
Named in honor of Bruce Shaw, a longtime patron, supporter and performer with the Ensemble.  Bruce has performed leading roles in All My Sons and Colonel Pilate, been featured in shows like La Cage Aux Folles and others.  We honor Bruce because his generosity allowed us the opportunity to purchase our ETC building sign.  Currently our sign is in storage while search for a new home, but our gratitude to Bruce for the ability to visibly represent our organization, as well as his continued patronage and support ranks pretty high in our success.

The Robbye Lewis Level
$10
per month
Named in honor of Robbye Lewis.  After 40 years as a mother and social worker, Robbye Lewis decided to pursue a career in acting, her passion which she had dutifully put on hold.  Finishing Chattanooga's own Professional Actor Training Program at Chattanooga State, Robbye embarked on auditions that took her far and away from Chattanooga on temporary contracts.  When she learned of ETC, she was one of the first to jump on board.  Literally.  Robbye was our first board president, leading us through the hurdles of our non-profit status, the negotiation of a new facility in 2012, cheer leading our successes, aiding us through our difficulties.  In 2015, Robbye moved to Minneapolis, MN and it was a sad day for ETC.  But she continues supporting us and she continues wishing us well.  Without Robbye, ETC would be a shadow of what it is today.
