Jesuit Theater kicks off the 2010 year with the highly anticipated Senior One Acts.  Mr. Myers, director of Jesuit theater, calculated that “last year the two One Act productions attracted more than 1,200 audience members.” In addition, the One Acts, according to Myers, are “a great opportunity for anyone to get onstage,” and experience the thrill of being in...
