We have seen a number of productions at this theater. One of our favorites is the currently running Veronica's Room. Wow, I was blown away. For those that have never been, this is a small venue, about 75 seats or so. With only 4 rows and some seating in the corners, the audience is very close to the stage making... More

We live in St Charles and have season tickets so we are biased. Tiny, tiny theater so you can really see the actors. Quality of the acting is reasonable--in line with what you are paying. We enjoy it and would reccomend it.

This theater is so small, you would never believe it until you see it... Three and a half rows of seats! The actors are no more than a few feet away from you - so, you can see each and every grimace they make. Family atmosphere! Loved it.

The theater itself leaves you wondering what you have stepped in to, but the quality of the shows are outstanding. And it is a very very small venue, so there are no bad seats. It was a great evening.

You are right up in the production. With only 4 rows of seating, very comfortable by the way, you get right up in the production. Its unlike any theater experience you have had before. The play wasy great and acting was sharp. I will get season tickets.

We have been going to Steele Beam a few years. This is a local theater that puts on 6-7 plays in a year, with good variety to choose from. The theater is small and intimate. I especially enjoy the musicals that they perform. It is just amazing how many talented folks there are in the area and the professional quality... More

Not a bad seat in the house. Wonderful space just steps away from local eateries with delish dishes and fab wine lists.

Very cozy venue. You are right up front with the professional performers. Grab a beverage(adult available), sit back and enjoy great local theater in a tremendous , vibrant area on the Fox River.

Kind of small and cramped, but it kind of adds to the atmosphere. If you have kids, bring them to one of the kid productions - they'll love it.
