Welcome to the Stage: Encore Performing Arts Theatre

In 2009, a group of educated, talented and “arts minded” people spent months collaborating on the birth of a new Performing Arts Theatre for the Pine Belt, and thus came to fruition Encore Performing Arts Theatre. Dance Etcetera, a company that has been in the Pine Belt for 5 years, took EPAT on as its community project giving the theatre life thru its students, donations and home.   Dance Etcetera underwrote much of the cost of the first and second season in order to give EPAT the opportunity to grow and be shared with others. As we enter the 4th season, Encore is a successful community theatre with many volunteers and members. All revenue collected in conjunction with shows or fundraisers is put DIRECTLY back into the shows. There is no paid staff; simply volunteers working together to provide opportunities for children and adults to develop their talents in theatre arts and provide the community with enriching theatrical experiences. Juna Broome, Creative Director comments, “Our goal is to inspire, challenge, educate, and empower artists and audiences alike in order to make the Pine Belt a more conscious and compassionate community. By providing quality entertainment through our theatrical productions, we showcase local talent and bring an enjoyable theatrical experience to our community while honoring the contributions of our patrons, supporters, and staff. We hope the Pine Belt sees Encore not as just another production group, but instead as a vehicle for families and individuals alike to embrace the stage, broaden their horizons as well as learn and have fun.” For more information about Encore Performing Arts Theatre and their upcoming shows and locations as well as how to become a member; Contact Juna Broome 601-297-5157 or email
