 Welcome to the Joliet Drama Guild

Now in our 81st year of bringing quality theater to the Joliet area!

The Joliet Drama Guild is extremely pleased to announce auditions for RENT will be held Friday May 16th, 6-10pm, Saturday May 17th, 1-5pm, and CALLBACKS Sunday May 18th, 1-5pm. See the auditions page for more information.


We regret to inform you that our  two scheduled productions of A Few Good Men and Born Yesterday have been canceled until such time that we can produce them in a manner consistent with our quality productions of the past. We are committed to only produce shows of the highest quality. If we feel that we cannot provide that level of product for you, our audience, we have an obligation to not disappoint you.

The board welcomes Nicole Kaestner as our newest member. Nicole was the assistant director and stage manager for “Mary, Mary”, and comes to us with a wealth of experience in the theatre, an abundance of energy, and a great attitude! We are very fortunate to have her with us!

The special presentation of H.G. Well’s “War of the Worlds” at the Joliet Historical Museum came out very nicely! You can point your browser to WJOL.com and look for the podcasts and hear it as it was originally heard 75 years ago.
