Award-winning professional theatre up close on Main Street

Steel Beam Theatre Mission


Steel Beam Theatre Mission

Professional, award-winning theatre up close in the heart of St. Charles

From the beginning, Steel Beam Theatre has focused on presenting passionate, engaging, provoking - but always entertaining - professional theatre that's accessible and affordable to all audiences.

As the name suggests, Steel Beam provides a pillar of the community, offering a gathering place for those deeply interested in fostering the arts in downtown St. Charles, as well as the surrounding cities (South Elgin, Batavia, Geneva and West Chicago), and the Fox Valley region.

Our mission includes developing programs that build and foster interest in the performing arts for future generations. To that end we are a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization in order to pursue youth and community outreach, training and education.

You'll love the Beam!

Experience theatre performances in a unique, intimate space where you're up close to the actors and the story their telling. Live theatre offers an uncommon delight that's perfect for an evening or day out for two or a group.

Why live theatre?

You probably enjoy your favorite musicians live and up close. Well, we sing and dance. If you like cabaret-style stand-up comedy, we're funny, too, and in all the right places. Everything we do is live and in the moment.  We'd love to see you there as well.
