Welcome to the Elgin Theatre Company home page.
Our goal is to bring quality entertainment to Elgin and the northwest suburbs.
Our next production will be..............
A Christmas Carol
a play based on the novel by
Charles Dickens, adapted by Philip Grecian
The original Dickens story is all here: Scrooge
refuses a Christmas dinner invitation from his nephew, Fred,
turns away charity workers raising money for the poor and
bullies his clerk, Bob Cratchit. Jacob Marley makes his visit
while the sound effects crew shakes chains and the music
director plays eerie chords. The Ghost of Christmas Past takes
Scrooge to Fezziwig's party, and we hear the music and the
dancing feet on the wooden floor. The Ghost of Christmas Present
leads him through the streets of London to his nephew's house,
where he joins, invisibly, in a guessing game, discovering how
much fun he can have if he opens his heart, just in time to
visit Bob Cratchit's family and open his heart to Tiny Tim.
Finally, the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come, whose "voice" is
provided by the music director's keyboard, shows Scrooge his
horrible fate. Scrooge awakens at home a changed man.

The Elgin Theatre Company has a
theatrical history. A list of every ETC production, as well as other historical tidbits can be found here.
For over fifty nine years Elgin
enjoyed a vibrant and active community theatre group. Over the past several years, the word is out - there is
quality theatre northwest of Chicago.
Many of our patrons are amazed at
just how much talent we have here in Elgin and how lucky we are to be
able to enjoy productions that rival those "downtown" (and at a
fraction of the cost).
The goal of the Elgin Theatre
is to provide quality entertainment and education to all residents of
Elgin, and beyond. It is also a place for those wishing to explore and
exercise their talents in a friendly, open, and warm atmosphere.
The Elgin Theatre Company exists
our community and we strive to be community theatre at its best. We
welcome your involvement, your patronage, and your
