Saint Ignatius High School

Marvel Spotlight

Face front, true believers: Saint Ignatius High School is proud to be presenting Marvel Spotlight on October 18, 19, and 20! Come join Thor, Squirrel Girl, and Spider-Man as they go up against the evil forces of Loki, Dr. Doom, MODOC, and more over three new one act plays.

Perfect for audiences in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades (and the young at heart), the Marvel Spotlight plays put the focus on issues that teens face today, including sibling rivalry, adjusting to new school environments, self-esteem, and depression.*

Note: These three one acts – Hammered: A Thor & Loki Play by Christian Borle, Squirrel Girl Goes to College by Karen Zacarías, and Peter Parker and the Kid Who Flew by Leah Nanako Winkler – are part of the Marvel pilot program. Pilot programs are facilitated by production companies to test out new material before releasing it to a wider audience. In this case, Saint Ignatius is one of a small handful of high schools across the country who are producing these works-in-progress.

What does this mean for you? Well, not only will you witness something currently in development, but you'll be able to provide feedback on your experience with the Saint Ignatius production staff. Much like test audiences for the newest movies, the drama team will be able to synthesize your thoughts and present them to our friends at Marvel. In other words, YOU can make a difference!

*Our Spider-Man one act – performed aftert Thor and Squirrel Girl – deals with a student struggling with suicidal thoughts. While we believe this is an important topic for our teens to discuss, if you feel younger members in your group would struggle with this content, we have strategically placed a 10 minute intermission right before this particular play begins. Parents who wish for their small children to miss the Spider-Man one act can comfortably leave during this intermission.

Ticket prices online are as listed. Online sales will end 1 hour before the show begins. Tickets at the door will be Adults: $15; Seniors: $13; Students: $10

Note: Any unsold tickets to the show will be made available for FREE to students in grades 5-12 an hour before showtime (box office only). Please note that we have had numerous sold out performances in the past – based on how well the show sells, we may not have any free student tickets available for certain performances. The best practice is to buy your tickets in advance
