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.
The Jesuit Philelectic Society is proud to present Brigadoon:
Prepare to be enchanted by the Jesuit Philelectic Society’s spring production of Brigadoon which launches on March 26.
Brigadoon is a musical with a book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe. The tale opens with New Yorker Tommy Albright unexpectedly arriving at the mysterious Scottish Highland village of Brigadoon, which only appears for one day every 100 years. When Tommy meets and falls in love with Fiona, a beautiful villager in this magical hamlet, he must decide whether to return to his old life, or stay in Brigadoon — forever. The show will be directed by Mrs. Kate Arthurs-Goldberg and choreographed by Kenny Beck ’79.
All performances will be held in the Jesuit’s auditorium. As of now, all shows have been postponed until further notice. Please check back for updated showtimes.
