Our girls come from many public and private schools across the St. Louis area.
I notice you have girls in your theatre productions. Where do they come from?
De Smet Jesuit theatre experiences offer an opportunity for involvement of staff and students from the entire school in addition to female students from neighboring schools. The concentrated rehearsal schedule and the total organizational structure assures self-sustaining, highly professional performances.
De Smet Jesuit Theatre 2020-2021 Schedule
Because of ongoing uncertainties with COVID-19, De Smet Theatre is changing its approach to the upcoming season. We are no longer planning to produce See How They Run in October or Pippin in February. We are looking at a number of options for students interested in being actively involved with De Smet Theatre and De Smet Dionysian Players (DDP).
Please stay tuned for updates, and thank you for your patience and understanding.

Not at all. We've set up the production schedule so that we have a production in each of the three sports seasons. So, if you play basketball, you could be involved in the Fall Play or the One Acts. If you play soccer, you could be involved in the Musical or One Acts. If you play baseball, you could do the Fall Play or Musical.
No experience necessary—everyone is welcome!
Learning flexibility and problem solving in this active class on stage.
Acting students will focus solely upon the study of acting and will perform three or four scenes and monologues, continue reading plays, and explore theater history. Directing students will perform two scenes, and, with a focus upon directing, direct the Acting students in two scenes and monologues (and be eligible to direct the student one-act plays in the spring).
This junior and senior elective course is for students who are interested in music and willing to consider the valuable role it plays in our lives.
