Thank you for your interest in Alpha Psi Omega! We are the National Theater Honor Society of St. John's University in Queens, New York.

 

 

About Us:

The purpose of this Honor Society is to stimulate interest in theater activities at St. John's, and to reward and acknowledge student participants for their talents and dedication to the performing arts. Alpha Psi Omega is dedicated to bringing art to the stage by not only supporting original student works, but by also encouraging student artists to participate in performance and production roles alike. Alpha Psi Omega's goal is to spread interest and acknowledgment of the performing arts through fellowship and service. 

 

Membership:

Alpha Psi Omega values the dedication its members have to the St. John's performing community. The Theater Honor Society works very closely with the Chappell Players, the theater group of St. John's University, and membership requires any form of participation in their shows or those shows produced by Alpha Psi Omega.

While a stage performance in any show is based on auditions or other criteria, membership is based on the dedication of the performer and the amount of time and talents donated to the theater.

Membership is by invitation only. For information on how to obtain membership, please email us at stjapo@gmail.com

 

Performances:

The Upsilon Chi Cast puts on several shows throughout the school year. Our signature events include Fall's Opening Week Show, Cabaret for Charity, and One Acts. Our Spring shows include Relay for Laughs, Dance Concert, and Showmidean. Almost all shows are student directed and feature student artist works.

We hope you can make it to some of our events this season at the Little Theater on our Queens Campus!
