Our next production will be..............

On Golden Pond    a 1979 play by Ernest Thompson    

On Golden Pond is a 1979 play by Ernest Thompson. This is the love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer, who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the forty-eighth year. He is a retired professor, nearing eighty, with heart palpitations and a failing memory—but still as tart-tongued, observant and eager for life as ever. Ethel, ten years younger, and the perfect foil for Norman, delights in all the small things that have enriched and continue to enrich their long life together. They are visited by their divorced, middle-aged daughter and her dentist fiancé, who then go off to Europe, leaving his teenage son behind for the summer. The boy quickly becomes the "grandchild" the elderly couple have longed for, and as Norman revels in taking his ward fishing and thrusting good books at him, he also learns some lessons about modern teenage awareness—and slang—in return. In the end, as the summer wanes, so does their brief idyll, and in the final, deeply moving moments of the play, Norman and Ethel are brought even closer together by the incidence of a mild heart attack. Time, they know, is now against them, but the years have been good and, perhaps, another summer on Golden Pond still awaits.

History

The Elgin Theatre Company has a rich theatrical history.  A list of every ETC production, as well as other historical tidbits can be found here.

For over fifty nine years Elgin has 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 Company 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 for our community and we strive to be community theatre at its best. We welcome your involvement, your patronage, and your support!
