the executive staff
They began working together during the summer of 2008 at the Chattanooga State Repertory Theatre Summer Theatre Festival. As fate would have it, they were immediately, drawn together by their shared vision and work ethic. Having founded ETC in 2007, Garry Lee Posey knew he had found 2 kindred spirits that would be able to help take ETC to the next level. In the fall of 2009, Posey invited John Thomas Cecil and Christy Gallo to join him in producing theatre full time with ETC. They have been Producing Partners (and best friends) ever since.
