Our 66th season is something special! Order your tickets today!

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.

Directions to the Theatre


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!
