Next Production

Laughter on the 23rd Floor has been canceled

Elgin Theatre Company has two main play types that excite our ever loyal and new audience members. One of these play types is comedy. Recently, we finished a comedy called Filumina which provided us with SOLD OUT audiences almost every performance. To continue with a show that will keep our audiences laughing at almost every moment, we are going to perform Laughter on the 23rd Floor by Neil Simon. The ideas for this script originated from Simon’s experiences as a young writer on Sid Caesar’s television program Your Show of Shows. The writing staff, including Simon, were constantly working to write gags that would top the other staff members offerings and also please the star of the show, Max Prince. Not only did the writers compete with each other, they also had to be alert to the network’s guidelines for a TV show. Put the cooler spring season away and book your tickets to see this show which will warm your soul and tickle your funny bone.
