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!
The stakes are higher than ever in this dynamic stage musical, as SpongeBob and all of Bikini Bottom face the total annihilation of their undersea world. Chaos erupts. Lives hang in the balance. And just when all hope seems lost, a most unexpected hero rises up and takes center stage. The power of optimism really can save the world!
