children's theatre of elgin / fox valley theatre company



Thanks to our wonderful supporters, we raised $2,500 on #GivingTuesday! Despite a pandemic and uncertain times, you all came through for us, and we are so grateful.

If you didn’t get a chance to donate, you can still do that! Our fiscal years ends on December 31st, so you can still help us end this year with as many donations as possible to carry us into 2021.

From all of us at CTE, thank you and Happy Holidays!

YOU can play a principal role at CTE!

Donor gifts make it possible for us to provide thousands of young people with outstanding theatrical experiences not otherwise attainable.

You can give as an individual or in the name of your business. Some sponsor levels include free tickets, and program ads reach 2,000+ people at each production.

Won’t you help sustain the quality and affordability of CTE programs by donating today?


We want to thank all of our wonderful sponsors for the 2019-20 Season. Thank you also to everyone who donated anonymously through our Facebook fundraisers on Giving Tuesday. We are truly grateful for those gifts, and for the ones listed below. Thank you for keeping the curtain up for CTE!
