HISTORY OF GECA
The Greater Escambia Council for the Arts was founded Sept. 12, 2000. Founded by Phil Johnson and Jerry Janes, the company has grown to unbelievable heights thanks to the efforts of every contributor to the shows inside and out. GECA was a travelling theater company for the longest time until they found a home on Trammel Street in 2008. Since then, The Greater Escambia Center for the Arts has been the home to many shows and many experiences that are held dear by the community.
