"ART" is coming soon to QCT!

This is an interesting piece of research I found when working on the show. I loved the message and thought I would share it.

"Yes, Art is the great and universal refreshment. For Art is never dogmatic; holds no brief for itself you may take it or you may leave it. It does not force itself rudely where it is not wanted. It is reverent to all tempers, to all points of view. But it is wilful -- the very wind in the comings and goings of its influence, an uncapturable fugitive, visiting our hearts at vagrant, sweet moments; since we often stand even before the greatest works of Art without being able quite to lose ourselves! That restful oblivion comes, we never quite know when -- and it is gone! But when it comes, it is a spirit hovering with cool wings, blessing us from least to greatest, according to our powers; a spirit deathless and varied as human life itself."

--John Galsworthy (1867-1933).

Thank you!

Thank you to everyone involved in, "The Producers", from the performers to the sponsors, to the crew, musicians and staff, but most of all, the ingredient we could not go without in live theatre ... the audience. The show was fun to do but without the response of the live audience everyone's hard work would have gone unnoticed. I have been in Quincy for over six years now, and in all that time I have never seen such a positive response from an audience. Thank you for coming to the theatre. We look forward to seeing you next time. And remember, thank the sponsors ... Cell Tech, Emerald City Jewelers, State Street Bank, GREDF, The Travel House of Quincy, STARadio and Comcast Spotlight. Just take three minutes out of your day to write them a letter telling them how much you appreciate their support of QCT.

Thanks for laughing with us this summer,
