Our Story

The Elk River Community Theatre was formed in the summer of 1975 by a small group of local volunteers dedicated to providing an organization for the performing arts in the Elk River Area. We have continued to grow as an organization and now include other surrounding communities in Hennepin, Wright, Anoka, Sherburne, Milaca, and Sterns counties. In the last 42 years, the ERCT has provided our community with 66 productions.

If you’re looking for a way to support our organization you can come see a show, volunteer or donate!

Volunteering is a fun opportunity to meet people, be a part of a production or enhance your creative abilities. The ERCT is always looking for volunteers to help keep our organization strong. Over the years we have enlisted the help of teenagers, church organizations, professional business owners, builders, actors, musicians, seamstresses and anyone willing to lend a hand.
