The Philelectic Society—the oldest co-curricular organization at Jesuit—is the school’s drama department. It presents the public with musical theatre as well as comedy and dramatic pieces in Jesuit’s 894-seat auditorium. Seniors have the opportunity to direct one-act plays as well.
All components of theatre are developed here, including acting, set design, lighting, sound, public relations, graphic design, carpentry, and set construction. Acting workshops and training for the booming film and commercial industry are available to members.
For the 2017–18 Fall Season, The Philelectic Society presents William Shakespeare’s As You Like It and Twelfth Night. Both shows are directed by Phils moderator Kate Arthurs-Goldberg. Tickets can be purchased online or at the Phils box office.
