Blackfriars Guild



The Blackfriars Guild presents three mainstage performances and numerous small scale performances These give the students an opportunity to learn theatre arts (onstage and on crew) and to express themselves artistically through acting, singing, dancing, playing musical instruments (solos and in groups) and skit writing, as well as to learn how to share their theatrical talents with others as they prepare productions for performance.

  • BFG is so excited to start our 21-22 season with a staged reading of the new musical, Anastasia. 
  • Anastasia is a musical with music and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, and a book by Terrence McNally. Based on the 1997 film of the same name, the musical adapts the legend of Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia, who could have escaped the execution of her family. Years later, an amnesiac orphan named Anya hopes to find some trace of her family by siding with two con men who wish to take advantage of her likeness to the Grand Duchess.

    • Virtual Submission are due no later than 5PM, August 25th.
  • Stay tuned for tickets to the show which will show September 17-18 in the Fenwick Auditorium!
