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 presented their winter musical, Guys and Dolls, between March 17–20 and March 24–27. The musical romantic comedy involves the unlikeliest of Manhattan pairings: a high-rolling gambler and a puritanical missionary, a showgirl dreaming of the straight-and-narrow and a crap game manager who is anything but. The show premiered on Broadway in 1950, where it ran for 1,200 performances and won the Tony Award for Best Musical.

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 starring Cary Grant.
