The Jesuit Masque is bringing an American classic to life with its spring production of “The Great Gatsby” from April 12-14 in the Multi-Purpose Room on campus.
The renowned novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald, set among the wealthy elite on Long Island in the Roaring Twenties, has been adapted many times onto the big screen and stage, most recently in the 2013 movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio. The Masque is performing the 2006 stage version by Simon Levy.
The show features veteran Jesuit stage performers George Morgan ’18 as Jay Gatsby, Riley Buchanan ’20 as Nick Carraway, Tyler Peterson ’18 as Tom Buchanan, Harrison Redd ’18 as Meyer Wolfsheim, and Jack Mahoney ’18 as George Wilson. A host of other Jesuit and Academy of the Holy Names students are part of the ensemble cast, the largest for a Jesuit production in years. Jesuit's theatre director, Richard Miller, is the director.
The Masque will perform four showings of “The Great Gatsby” over three days, at 7:30pm each night from April 12-14, as well as a 1:00pm matinee on Sat. April 14. Click here to purchase tickets in advance.
