St. John’s Jesuit Campion Hall Players Fall Play

 

Scapino!

 

 Campion Hall Players

There is a rich history of theater at St. John’s Jesuit. Productions in the McQuade Theater have ranged from Shakespeare's Julius Caesar and The Taming of the Shrew to Miller's The Crucible and Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451.

The plays are chosen not only for their audience appeal, but also for what the actors and crew will learn from the experience. With Ignatian pedagogy an ever-present philosophy, plays with larger and flexible casts have been selected in recent years, so that virtually all students who audition can be cast in the production. Young women from the girls’ academies, as well as other schools, fill the female roles.

In 1999, the word "Players" was added to the original Campion Hall to clarify its purpose. In 2010, a production by the SJJ Academy was added.

The following is a chronicle of the plays that have been performed, along with the Director and the Assistant or Co-Director(s).
