The production season of the Joliet Drama Guild now runs from January 1st through December 31st.
Typically we produce 1 play or small musical, 1 large musical in the summer and a Christmas show every season as our mainstream offerings. Our Studio J productions are usually something “a little different”. We also try to offer various workshops throughout the year on various topics to increase participant's stagecraft. We have also performed murder mystery dinner theater for select audiences in the intimate and authentic setting of a historical mansion.
Plays and musicals are selected for the following year by the board members of the Joliet Drama Guild.
