News Coverage of Jesuit Stage & Film

The lights dim in the auditorium, and people begin to scuttle to their seats in the dark. The hum of conversation dies down, and silence fills the room. Suddenly, a glaring spotlight appears on the stage, directing the audience's attention to center stage as the play begins. This dramatic sequence signals the beginning of an original Jesuit Stage and...
For the past month and a half, the Theatre Arts class has been practicing and preparing to perform their comedic play TOC TOC. Before the play began, the Director, Mr. Acevedo, addressed the crowd and gave a little background on the actual name of the play.

Everyone waits with bated breath for the first line to be delivered . . . and then all too quickly it ends, and you leave wishing for more—more drama, more comedy, more performances.  Welcome to Jesuit One Acts. Jesuit Theatre held its fourteenth annual senior directed one-act plays on...
The theater goes from dark to dimly lit all while serene music plays in the background. Multiple characters, half with greased back hair, the other half wearing khakis and sweaters walk across the stage. Some do secret handshakes, others converse jovially. However, one thing can be agreed upon: this is the Jesuit Fall Theater Production. In November on the weekends...
