“After nourishment, shelter, and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.” (Philip Pullman)
Welcome to the Black Box!
This year Jesuit Drama celebrates its 51st Anniversary Season of producing student-centered, process-oriented work in the Ignatian tradition. Jesuit Drama students come together and work according to five core values: Collaboration, Creativity, Respect, Responsibility, and Service. Our program produces at least three shows a year: a fall play, a winter musical, and a spring touring-show, and there are several opportunities for our many talented students to participate both on and off stage.
Check back here for more about our shows, special events and a few surprises…
On Wednesday, November 8, 2017, Jesuit Drama will host a special benefit performance of its fall play, Isaiah Says, in our Black Box Theater, benefitting Sr. Libby Fernandez’s new “bicycle ministry” Mercy Pedalers whose members bicycle (and tricycle!) around the greater Sacramento area giving aid and comfort to those who are homeless.
Please join us “Beyond the Black Box” for this special evening:
This fall, the students and staff of Jesuit Drama will collaborate on a company-created new work about those affected by displacement, houselessness and homelessness.
Homelessness in our city is a growing problem, and its effects on our businesses, churches, communities, economy, environment, families, friends, law enforcement, neighborhoods and veterans cannot be ignored. This, combined with hearing about Sr. Libby Fernandez’s new mobile, bike-ministry “Mercy Pedalers,” has inspired us to create a play of our own.
