The school year is filled with Performing Arts events. From our annual Night of Broadway Stars, the Christmas Concert featuring our Chorus and Jazz Band, our award-winning Winter Musical and Spring Drama, to Cabaret Knight and an Alumni Show, the Inserra Theater is in constant “show mode”.
Musicals at St. Joe’s are nationally recognized and critically acclaimed as the best in the area. The shows are cast by audition with parts for actors, singers, dancers, and stage crew. Talented girls from surrounding high schools join the young men on the stage each year, making the shows one of the best ways to make new friends. Players on the SJR stage train with Broadway professionals each year in singing, acting, choreography, makeup, costuming and stage combat.
Past SJR productions have included LES MISÉRABLES, the high school debut of MISS SAIGON, CURTAINS, and dramas IS HE DEAD?, A FEW GOOD MEN, LEND ME A TENOR, and THE CRUCIBLE.
SJR also offer opportunities to join the school chorus for performances at liturgies, concerts, malls, nursing homes, and local parades. Students who play instruments may hit the high note of their young careers with the SJR Jazz Band.
