Shows

Our two troupes present four fabulous large-scale musical theatre productions annually. We specialize in great family-oriented entertainment!

Children’s Theatre of Elgin (CTE) performs at the Hemmens Cultural Center with cast members in Grades 2 – 9. CTE shows are primarily based on fairy tales, children’s literature, or shortened Broadway favorites.

Fox Valley Theatre Company (FVTC) is more advanced with cast members in Grade 9 – 20 years old performing full-length Broadway-type musicals at the Elgin Community College Arts Center.
