The Princess Avenue Playhouse
The Princess Avenue Playhouse, home of the Elgin Theatre Guild, is located at 40 Princess Avenue. The former church, built in 1907 by the Church of Disciples, was sold to the Elgin Theatre Guild in 1987-1988, giving the building a new lease on life.
Since that time, the Guild has ensured that many of the original features of this fine building have been maintained. This handsome brick building, designed by architect Neil Darrach, has three outstanding facades (north, east, south) which are framed by two distinctively different towers. Anchored in the center of each of the three facades at the second floor level in the gable ends, are sizable, circular stained-glass windows. These windows have been incorporated in several plays, including "Agnes of God".
Also noticeable in the brick construction is the use of pink mortar.
