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.

2020 - 2021 Season
Given the ever-changing circumstances due to Covid-19, we plan to have a larger number of small events to provide students every possible opportunity to perform. The titles for our typical mainstage performances have not been selected yet, due to the vast list of unknowns regarding social distancing and performance opportunity.
