 ELT Presents
Engle Lane Presents is an article written by theatre volunteers giving our patrons a unique look at a production. Click on the link above for the upcoming show or most recent. Previous editions can be found in News Archives.

Raising the curtain on this year's "written in pencil" mini-slate of indoor productions, please note that it's been our goal to provide you with some live entertainment in 2021 and at the same time, try and generate some cash revenue for our venue that has been dormant since October of 2019.
With that in mind please remember that all 2021 shows will be general admission, purchase at the door, ten-dollar cash sales only. These five proposed productions are NOT included in any season ticket packages. All existing season ticket holders, your tickets have been forwarded to the 2022 season (our 65th!!) presentation of performances.
As always, we're so grateful to ALL of you for your continued support & patronage! We're truly excited to bring live theatre back inside our facility starting next month.
We hope to see you soon!

Welcome to the Engle Lane website.  We invite you to regulary use this site to stay informed on every production and special event that is happening at our community theatre.  You'll find useful information about our box office and ticket policies as well as applications for future directors, our annual scholarship program, and how you can join us as a volunteer.

We will also keep you informed of relevant news and current events that involves our organization including information on our 2021 Pencil Us In Mini Slate of shows, and we invite you to take a trip down memory lane by reviewing the list of every production we've done and the volunteers who helped make them happen.

We got our start in the summer of 1958 because a small group of theatre-enthusiasts dreamed to "put on a play."  Thanks to hundreds of passionate volunteers enduring thousands of tireless hours, that original dream became a remarkable reality, called Engle Lane Theatre.  Yes, we've faced our fair share of hardships and setbacks over the past half century.  We even weathered a devastating tornado in 2010.  

But, through it all, we remained committed to our original dream, and we now proudly call our home the William C. Schiffbauer Center for the Performing Arts at Engle Lane Theatre.  It's where we not only "put on a play," but where we help promote and support the arts for the entire Illinois Valley.  Thanks for sharing our dream!!
