Fall Play

University of Detroit Jesuit High School and Academy is pleased to announce the 2023 fall play — You're Only Young Once!

A play about the sheer insanity of high school life and its societies. The plot is a simple one of life's little complications, romantic entanglements and academic pressures. The real delights in this enormously popular play are the almost allegorical types the characters portrayed. There's the principal, the coach, the English teacher, the athletic star, the honors student, the ladies' man, the President of the PTA and many others. The setting is the principal's office on the morning of the big game, and all kinds of confusion ensue!
