Past QCT On The Road Productions


April-June 2016

Sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield

by Dinah Toups | Experience theatre in a totally new way! TOTALLY RED!, adapted from the beloved fairy tale “Little Red Riding Hood,” first introduces us to Red (who is nobody’s fool), the wolf (who tries to be cool), and granny (who is sometimes left in the dark). This fast-paced production then adapts the timeless tale to five different theatrical styles: a humorous storybook retelling; melodrama (The Perils of Being Miss Red); Elizabethan (Much Ado About Red); hip-hop (REDz in the Hood); and avant-garde (Call the Moment RED). Written for audiences of all ages, this is the perfect show to both entertain and educate!


Toured April 2015

Sponsored by grants from the Illinois Arts Council, the city of Quincy and the business and individual members of the Quincy Society of Fine Arts.

by Debbie Lamedman | Snowflakes is a “theatrical documentary” exploring the beauty and wonder of autism. The story follows Suzanna, a photographer who is interviewing people on the autism spectrum to learn more about their lives and their unique qualities. This incredibly moving production traveled to schools across the Tri-States during the month of April in celebration of Autism Awareness Month and continued throughout the month of May. QCT On The Road partnered with the Quincy Area Autism Support Group for this production, and a representative from the group traveled with the performers for a post-show question and answer session regarding issues explored in the play.
