The Beverly Theatre Guild’s mission is to promote the development of talent and community interest in theatre arts through theatrical productions. During our history, this mission has been exemplified through more than 150 full-scale productions and numerous involvements in neighborhood and educational events.
As Chicago’s oldest community theatre company, the roots of the Beverly Theatre Guild go back to 1929 as a program of the Chicago Park District at Ridge Field House.
BTG often produces three shows a year, a musical, a drama, and a comedy, with auditions open to all. We’ve also hosted a summer cabaret fundraiser. Our members range in age from 4 to over 80 with seniors often playing roles in our productions and mentoring younger members.
BTG has something for everyone! We take great pride in our long history of providing creative outlets for actors and theatre craftsmen. Our productions draw people from all over Chicago and surrounding suburbs. We welcome people who are new to community theatre as well as those who have appeared in professional shows.
We strive to present high quality, diverse productions for our patrons. BTG invites you to play a part in our future as a theatre patron, cast member, or a valued member of our production staff. If you have a passion for theatre and enjoy being part of a community of like-minded individuals, BTG is for you.
