Philelectic Society

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 Philelectic Society Presents Harvey:

The Jesuit Philelectic Society proudly presents Harvey for its fall production. Mary Chase’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play was first performed in the midst of World War II, and is the whimsical story of eccentric Elwood P. Dowd and his best friend, an invisible, six-foot-one-and-a-half-inch rabbit named Harvey. It brought laughter and hope to audiences battling tears and uncertainty. It is a popular but perpetually underappreciated masterpiece, whose power lies in richly drawn characters, whimsical humor, and a belief in the triumph of human decency.
