Children's Theatre of Elgin
Children’s Theatre of Elgin (CTE), formerly Elgin Children’s Theatre, was founded in 1988 by Peter and David Akemann to provide more opportunities for children 7-15 years old to participate in live musical theater. Since then, CTE and its affiliate Fox Valley Theatre Company (FVTC) have averaged four major shows every season. FVTC is for students 15-20 years old. Children’s Theatre of Elgin and Fox Valley Theatre Company are in-residence at the Elgin Community College (ECC) Arts Center.

Open auditions occur approximately nine weeks before each production with maximum cast sizes selected. To find out more, visit the Children's Theatre of Elgin website or call (847) 214-7152
