Lord of the Flies is cancelled

November 26 - Loyola Drama's production of Lord of the Flies has been cancelled. According to director Sean Ryan, "While the cast and crew were looking forward to presenting the Lord of the Flies to the Loyola community, the concussion suffered by our lead, forced us to pause and reflect. The health of the students, along with their academics, are my priority. The administration and I believe that postponing the show would place greater pressure in these areas, especially for our graduating cast members. While it saddens me that our work will not be presented this year, I feel that this difficult choice was the right one to make given the circumstances we were presented with."
