The Blakefield Players

Take the Stage

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.

Fall Play 2022

The Diviners
by Jim Leonard Jr.
October 20–23, 2022

A powerful drama set in 1930s Indiana that tells the story of 14-year-old Buddy, whose life changed forever with the death of his mother by drowning and his own near-death experience. This has given Buddy a powerful fear of water, even as a mysterious aquatic affinity gives him powers as a “water witch," with the ability to divine wells and predict the rain. He befriends C.C., a back-sliding preacher who has left the pulpit in Kentucky that he inherited from his forefathers to find an honest living for himself. When their worlds collide, it has devastating consequences.

This delightful play, based on the iconic 1985 Paramount movie, which, of course, was inspired by the classic Hasbro board game, is a hilarious farce-meets-murder mystery that will keep you guessing to the very end! Clue is the comedy whodunit that will leave both cult fans and newcomers in stitches as they try to figure out…WHO did it, WHERE, and with WHAT!
