Day of Giving 2019

The Elgin Theatre Company has been continuously producing plays and musicals in Elgin since 1952. While ticket sales are an important source of income for ETC, ticket sales alone cannot support the costs of providing theatrical and entertainment opportunities for the Elgin area.

Giving Tuesday will be celebrated on December 3rd this year and we would be grateful for your financial support. Click HERE to make a donation.

Thank you for your support.
