Next production

The Elgin Theatre Company begins its 2017-2018 season with its production of An Elgin Old Tyme Holiday Radio Show. Brings to life radio shows as they really were. This presentation features three radio shows: Archie Andrew's Christmas, Fibber Paints a Christmas Tree White, and a radio version of Miracle on 34th Street.

Archie Andrew's Christmas Shopping – Mass confusion results when Archie, his parents and all his friends go Christmas shopping at the same time in the same department store.

Fibber Paints a Christmas Tree White - Fibber is too cheap to pay $10 for a white-painted Christmas tree and decides to do it himself with the expected comic consequences.

Miracle on 34th Street - In this Christmas classic, Doris Walker a no-nonsense Macy's executive, desperately searches for a new store Santa. She hires Kris Kringle, who insists that he's the real Santa Claus. But he has many skeptics, including Doris and her young daughter, Susan. So Kris must go to court to try and prove it. Is he the real Santa Claus?

An Elgin Old Tyme Holiday Radio Show is a bit of nostalgic Elgin revisited for the holidays!
