For over forty seasons, the Elgin Theatre Guild has been entertaining audiences with productions ranging from comedic to dramatic. Run entirely by volunteers, the Elgin Theatre Guild now produces four shows a year that bring over two thousand patrons every year through the Princess Avenue Playhouse. Also, the Playhouse is haunted!

CALENDAR GIRLS April 28, 29, 30 @ 8pm May 5, 6, 7 @ 8pm May 1 & 821 @2pm
Based on the true story of eleven women who pose nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukaemia Research Fund. The art of this play's "nudity" lies in what is withheld and choreographed as a work of fabulous concealment.
Local theatre helps nurture new artists. Many successful actors, directors, writers, and choreographers have launched their careers in humble, small town playhouses.
You can be part of the storytelling process. Plays are an ancient form of storytelling. It’s a creative ritual still very much alive despite the age of Youtube.
There is nothing at all like the shared experience of human beings in an audience spontaneously reacting to a live production.
Theatre holds up a mirror to society and helps you see things in a new light.
