Theater/Drama News

There is no more welcoming, accepting, creative, and fun group than the Knight Players! Each year, the Assumption Knight Players produce four mainstage performances; a straight play and children’s show in the fall, and a musical and one act play in the spring.  Each show gives students the opportunity to participate in the theatre program in a variety of ways, ranging from acting onstage to helping behind the scenes, from set construction to ushering for the performances.  The Knight Players are also active in the International Thespian Society (Troupe #2761), attend the weekend long Iowa Thespian Festival in November each year, and every other year have the opportunity to attend the weeklong International Thespian Festival held in June.  By the time students reach senior year and find themselves speaking in the pre-show prayer circle, it is common to hear them saying they’ll never forget the family they’ve found in the Knight Players.
