Portland, OR. Over 50 notable alumni of Jesuit’s nationally-recognized drama program returned to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Performing Arts Center on January 6th. “We’re celebrating a place that our alums found while they were students at Jesuit High School,” says Drama Co-Director Jeff Hall. “It’s gratifying to see them so enthusiastic about returning to that place.” Supporters enjoyed some favorite moments of the past 20 years (and beyond) on the Marilyn Moyer Theatre stage, featuring performances by JHS favorites including Mike McKinsey, Marianna Thielen, Isaac Lamb, Courtney Freed, Nick Ardell, Abby Irwin, Bryce Earhart, Kathleen Hooper, Drew Schmidt, Isabel Klein, Jon Matter, Casey Collins, Brandon Gille and dozens more.
