Student Experience

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 2021

The Blakefield Players presented their fall play, Almost, Maine, from October 15–17 and October 22–24. A woman carries her heart, broken into nineteen pieces, in a small paper bag. A man shrinks to half his former size, after losing hope in love. A couple keeps the love they have given each other in large red bags, or compress the mass into the size of a diamond. This play is a comical and poignant look at relationships in nine vignettes.

Winter Musical 2022

The Blakefield Players will present their winter musical, 1776, from March 17–20 and March 24–27. This award-winning musical (Tony and New York Drama Critics 1968 awards) tells the story of our founding fathers trying to write our declaration of independence. The musical is not afraid to tell of the difficulties the founding fathers had in coming up with a declaration that was acceptable to everyone at the time. Often funny, often serious and always poignant. The relevancy of this story is as true now as it was during the height of the civil rights movement when it was written.

Tickets will be available for purchase at a later date.

Spring Comedy 2022

The Blakefield Players will present their spring comedy, Arsenic and Old Lace, from May 19–22. Meet the charming and innocent sisters who populate their cellar with the remains of socially and religiously “acceptable” roomers! Couple them with the antics of their nephews, one who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt, one who is a drama critic about to get married, and one who has escaped from prison and has his faced disguised through surgery and now looks like Boris Karloff. This zany comedy/thriller has had four movie adaptations, the most famous being the 1944 classic directed by Frank Capra and staring Cary Grant.
