The Drama Group

Drama Group’s new season kicks off with ‘Sister Act’ Oct. 12

As the song says, there’s “something for everyone” during 2018-2019 season of The Drama Group, a mainstay of the south suburban theater scene for 88 years.
 
That classic melody that opens “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” – one of the ensemble’s offerings this year – says it all. From side-splitting humor to life’s hardships to unforgettable songs, The Drama Group is presenting plays that cover a wide range of the human experience.
