Leading Ladies  a play written by Ken Ludwig                                           

                                 

                                                                                                                                                                                                

Set in York, Pennsylvania in 1958, this farce centers on two down-on-their-luck Shakespearean actors, Leo Clark and Jack Gable. The pair discovers through a newspaper that Florence, an older ailing woman, has been unable to find Max and Steve, her sister's children who moved away to England as children, in order to include them in her multi-million dollar inheritance. They decide to pose as Max and Steve to claim portions of it. When they discover that "Max" and "Steve" are actually "Maxine" and "Stephanie," they continue on, undaunted, in drag. “With a convoluted yet comprehensible plot, and more character-driven lunacy than snappy banter, Ken Ludwig again proves his reputation as the master of American farce.” J. Scott Hill.

History

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!

Live theatre locally,

it's just the ticket!
