Ensemble Theatre of Chattanooga Announces “The Color Purple” Performance Dates. The community is invited to join Ensemble Theatre of Chattanooga (ETC) for their 2014 season opener The Color Purple January 16 - 26; Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2:30 p.m. Performances will take place in their theatre space at the Eastgate Town Center at 5600 Brainerd Road. "I saw The Color Purple on Broadway and for me it was one of the most profound experiences," recalls director Garry Lee Posey. "I had read the book and seen the film prior and with each had been touched in different ways. With the musical, however, I was touched spiritually. Thinking about it now, I still get shivers. For ETC to be able to bring this production to Chattanoogans beyond excites me."
Tickets are $20 for General Admission and $15 for students by calling 423-602-8460 and at the box office. Doors open 30 minutes before each performance. Free parking is available at the Eastgate Town Center. For more information about the season, programming and opportunities, visit www.ensembletheatreofchattanooga.com or call 423-602-8460.
