A nervous actor walks through the long, dark hallway up to the stage. The bright lights flash on. The actor stands, alone, in front of the directors, with a few precious minutes to prove himself worthy of a role. This was the experience of every aspiring Jesuit actor on August 23 when auditioning for the Jesuit theater’s fall drama. These...
The theater darkens and the audience quiets as the bright actor's faces are illuminated by blinding yellow beams. In the packed theatre, the audience piles in to see four Dallas high schools perform for the first time in 2017!

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...
Those of us in Jesuit Stage and Film in the back corner of the school take quite a bit of pride in our work.
