The Elgin Summer Theatre production of
In The Heights has been postponed 
to July 2021

The City of Elgin and Up and Coming Theatre Company have decided, based on the Governor’s recommendation, to reschedule the Elgin Summer Theatre production of In the Heights. While we are disappointed we are not producing this summer, our number one priority is to keep everyone safe and healthy!

However, we’re happy to announce that In the Heights has been rescheduled for Summer 2021! Our new performance dates are July 9-11 and July 16-18, 2021. All auditions and performances will be at The Hemmens Cultural Center in Elgin as was planned for this summer!

Check back in 2021 for audition info.

In The Heights tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood – a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. In The Heights is the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations.
