In The Heights

Hi, UAC family!   We hope you and your families are staying healthy and safe as our shelter-in-place order continues.


The city of Elgin and Up and Coming Theatre Company have decided, based on the Governor’s recommendation, to reschedule our 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 is rescheduled for Summer 2021! Our new performance dates are July 9-11 and 16-18, 2021.  All auditions and performances will be at the Hemmens Cultural Center in Elgin as was planned for this summer!


While we are not producing a full show this summer, UAC has a lot in the works! (Look for some fun Spring and Summer digital programming in the coming weeks...)   To participate, make sure you are subscribed to our website www.uactheatre.org and follow us on social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram).

“Jaw dropping talent. Seriously. Can't get enough of UAC”

"It's an amazing production...vocals, acting, and choreography.... they hit on all cylinders!"

"Hands down this is the best community theatre show out there"

"Dude this is easily the best show I have ever seen off chicago broadway, I was expecting community theatre... this is legit!"

"RUN - do not walk to this show tomorrow. The show, the cast, the theme, the talent - it's all top notch."
