Jesuit Summer Theater

Mission Statement

Jesuit Summer Theater is an intensive, three-week program that provides instruction in theater to co-ed students in two clusters: one for high school students and the second for middle school students. The program produces a series of short plays on the campus of Jesuit College Prep, while emphasizing both acting and design theory. All students will act in the plays and help produce them. On the last night of the program, a performance will be offered for parents and friends.
