Joliet Drama Guild
Now in our 82nd year of bringing quality theater to the Joliet area! The Joliet Drama Guild has entertained residents of Joliet, Will County, and surrounding areas. Located at the lovely Billie Limacher Bicentennial Park Theater on the edge of historic downtown Joliet, we provide quality live entertainment at a low price. We have actors and audience members that are on the second, and in some cases, third generation of involvement with our guild.
More JDG information:
Latitude 41 was founded on the belief that Joliet-area audiences are eager for more quality community theater. Latitude
41 believes that community theater should be an artistically-enriching and enjoyable experience for the audience, the players, and the crew.
The founding members of Latitude 41 consist of the people that most recently were responsible for directing and/or producing such well-received shows as The Pillowman, Apartment 3A, Sylvia, Transylvania General, The Lion in Winter and the Odd Couple on the Bicentennial Park stage.
