Exchange Club and Arts Quincy Magazine

Here at QCT, I’m working on getting everything ready for the new session of spring classes that start this week.  But I didn’t want to forget to mention some exciting events from the past few weeks: First of all, Arts Quincy featured QCT’s education program on the cover of the latest issue of their magazine.  The…

The Addams Family: What I Learned

At QCT, we just closed The Addams Family: School Edition.  I’m unbelievably proud of this cast and crew for their work on this deliciously complicated show.  We had 26 student actors from all over the tri-state area – 13 of whom were making their QCT debuts!  Today I’ve been humming the songs, uploading the pictures…

Performances are February 7-10; tickets are available here.  This is one you won’t want to miss; our student actors are…

Honoring QCT’s 2018 Season

This past Saturday was a big one for QCT.  First of all, the cast of The Addams Family: School Edition was hard at work learning how to tango.  But later that evening, we held the ceremony for this year’s QUILTA Awards, to honor all of the good work that happened onstage and off during the…

The Witches – What I Learned

Hard to believe it’s been a whole week since performances of The Witches at Quincy Community Theatre.  I am so proud of the cast, crew, and volunteers who made this challenging show happen.  The Witches is a world full of puppets, magic, and special effects – and I’m so grateful for the wonderful team who…

Summer Wrap-up

Here in Quincy, school starts next week.  I can’t believe it’s that time of year already. That also means that at QCT, we’ve reached the end of our summer programming.  Last week was our Triple Threat Boot Camp —- the biggest education project of the year.  At Boot Camp, students put in an intense week…

Elephant and Piggie – What I Learned

Yesterday at QCT, we closed our sold out run of Elephant and Piggie’s “We Are in a Play!” I had a wonderful time working on this charming, energetic piece by Mo Willems and Deborah Wicks La Puma. If you missed it, I just uploaded some production photos to the Photos slideshow and the flickr stream….

Elephant and Piggie’s “We Are in a Play!”

Spring is off to a fabulous start here at QCT. Our touring production of Impressions of Yesterday has been out on the road for several weeks already; both casts are having a great time sharing this story of art and innovation throughout the Tri-States. They’ll be on the road through June 12th, you can view…

So many wonderful projects are coming to a head this week.  We just wrapped up spring classes, summer registration is now open, Totally Red has hit the road and will be visiting schools, libraries, and community groups between now and June 17.  On Thursday, the Quincy Junior High Drama Club will present their original play,…

Totally Red!

Here at QCT, spring classes have begun, the knights of the round table are prepping for the big opening of Camelot, and I’m  in rehearsals for our next student theatre production: Totally Red. Totally Red is the story of Little Red Riding Hood told in five different theatrical styles.  These talented student actors will take…

Shrek Photos and More!

What a wonderful weekend at QCT.  The sold-out run of Shrek TYA left me smiling every minute.  I am extremely proud of all the work the cast and crew brought to this story.  This was a very special production that was hard to say goodbye to!  Be sure to check out this blog post from…

In preparation for Shrek TYA…

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about opportunity. Today I had the unique opportunity to help in the scene shop.  Our wonderful technical director/designer extraordinaire Paul Denckla let me paint a few things for our set. As soon as I got a paintbrush in my hands, I couldn’t help but be reminded of what it…
