Upcoming Shows

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  at the Bicentennial Park in Joliet.  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 partnered with American Legion #1080 at 2625 Ingalls Ave and will  perform 2 murder mystery dinner theater shows a year along with other fun things like Pancakes with Peter, a Christmas show, Friday fish fry's and more!!! Come join us in all the fun!


Inspired by the original 1936 film of the same name, this raucous musical comedy takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the hysteria caused when clean-cut kids fall prey to marijuana, leading them on a hysterical downward spiral filled with evil jazz music, sex and violence.

You won't be able to resist the spoofy fun of Reefer Madness. The addictive, clever musical numbers range from big Broadway-style showstoppers to swing tunes like "Down at the Ol' Five and Dime" and the Vegas-style "Listen to Jesus, Jimmy," featuring J.C. Himself leading a chorus of showgirl angels. Refeer Madness is a highly stylized and satirical political commentary that will leave you wanting more.
