The Blakefield Players

The Loyola Blakefield Players present three productions each year for the school community including a drama, a musical, and a comedy. Students audition for each play or musical and then rehearse after school for a six to eight week period before performing on two consecutive weekends for the general public. The Stage Crew builds the scenery for each production and students on crew also serve as the technicians for sound, lights and backstage for each show.

2017–18 Season

List of 3 items.

  • The Front Page

    The first show is the comedy The Front Page by Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur, which runs from October 13–21, 2017. This play is a hilarious farce about a death row fugitive who escapes from the police on the same day the Governor issues his pardon. Fearful he will be taken to the gallows, the convict hides in the precinct right under the cops’ noses, unaware that he has been granted his freedom.
  • The Music Man

    The spring musical, the American favorite The Music Man, with book, music, and lyrics by Meredith Willson, runs March 9–18, 2018. When con man Harold Hill comes to River City, Iowa, he is intent on duping the naïve town folk, only to fall in love with Marian the librarian. This Broadway classic is one of the most critically-acclaimed musicals of all time and is filled with one toe-tapping tune after another.
  • The Thirty-Nine Steps

    The final production of the season is a comic adaptation of the Hitchcock thriller, The Thirty-Nine Steps, written by John Buchan and adapted by Patrick Barlow. The play, which features lightning-quick costume changes as actors switch between multiple roles, is a spoof of the suspense genre, and will be presented May 10–13, 2018.
