ECT finds new home in Fergus

FERGUS – The Elora Community Theatre (ECT) is moving to the Skyline Community Hub in Fergus.

The cast and crew will be moving all its staging, props and wardrobe back into Centre Wellington and closer to ECT’s stage home at the Fergus Grand Theatre.

“After 45 years as a local theatre company, it is astounding the chattels and gear that is collected over the years,” sajd ECT president Deb Stanson.

“We have been  blessed with the good nature and generosity of so many organizations over the years  and once again the community has rose to the challenge.   

“With the recent pandemic and COVID-19 outbreak, ECT has not been able to present and perform their annual performance series which covers costs and rental for all the company’s stock, rehearsal space and a site for set building.

“Therefore a need for a storage facility free of overhead was tantamount to remaining fluid during these trying times.”

The Elora Community Theatre will now have 2,000 square feet of storage space located at 900 Tower St. South in Fergus at the Skyline Community Hub.

The space will provide a secure setting for all the company’s possessions.

“Many thanks as well to Habitat Wellington Dufferin Guelph for the use of their cargo truck to expedite the move,” officials say.
