2015 has been a great year for Quincy Community Theatre!
I am honored to work alongside Brandon, Kelsey P, Shari, Paul and Kelsey C. It seems the season to reflect on the year, but how do I best reflect it? Nostalgia often breeds poetry I suppose, because some things are worth remembering in musical blasts.
I have to admit that I’ve not always understood why certain poems are considered artistic and classic. Rhythms and rhymes and abstract thoughts are sometimes hard for me to follow. Just ask anyone who has seen me dance. So, as you read my attempt to sum our year in prose, just remember: “Disjointed thoughts may be another man’s poetry”. Feel free to dance while reciting.
