QCT announces cast for DREAM ROLES REIMAGINED – 100th Anniversary Gala
Tickets are now available for Quincy Community Theatre’s 100TH ANNIVERSARY GALA fundraiser on Friday, September 22, 2023. The event will celebrate the theatre’s past, present, and future during the event. Funds raised will support QCT’s commitment to high-quality theatre entertainment and education.
“In September 1923, the first call went out to create a Little Theatre in Quincy,” said Executive Director Burgundy Hill. “In the century since, QCT has created an incredible legacy of performing arts in our community. This event will celebrate that legacy.”
The formal event will include dinner and a special one-night-only performance of DREAM ROLES REIMAGINED, and QCT’s 2024 season announcement. The performance will feature many familiar faces performing their favorite Broadway numbers with a twist.
Alison Shafer will serve as Director/Choreographer for DREAM ROLES REIMAGINED.
“I love the variety of songs, production numbers and performers – returning and new – that we have pulled together, and we are building a show specific to the talents of these performers,” said Shafer. “You can expect to hear phenomenal singers and see amazing dancers in what, I think, will be an extremely entertaining, celebratory evening.”

The cast includes Lana Anderson, Jordan Archibald, Kar’Mel Brewer, Emily Dozier, Marion Dye, Mason Ellison, Adrienne Fisk, Mekia Gay, Kimberly Grace, Christina Helm, Mindy Holthaus, Riley Holthaus, Kristen Houston, Haley Hurst, Bailey Link, Elizabeth Mannhardt, Megan Masterman, Logan Mulch, Laura Nash, Becky Payne, Drew Quintero, Dominic Regner, Kate Runfola, Julie Schuetz, Maurice Silas, Jeanette Soebbing, Sara Turnbow,and Lily Twaddle.
