A Chance to Relax

If your calendar looks anything like mine, it’s starting to fill with all kinds of holiday-related activities, from the family Thanksgiving dinner in just a few weeks, to the holiday parties, gift shopping, decorating, planning, baking, and so many other activities that fill our lives as fall transitions into that “most wonderful time of year.” … Continued

News Editor by Day, Stage Manager by Night

It is often said that the people of QCT put the “Community” in “Community Theatre.” I’m always fascinated by the diverse groups of actors who come together to make up a show. Some are repeat actors who have been in many shows, some are brand new to QCT. Local professionals, students, stay-at-home moms, retirees – … Continued

The Way We Should Be

Have you ever had one of those moments where you are scrolling through your Facebook newsfeed and you notice that a friend of yours from high school is friends with another one of your Facebook friends? Curiosity takes over, and you message one of them and ask “how do you know so-and-so?” and after your … Continued

Extraordinary Ordinary Life

I have a confession to make: I read OUR TOWN in high school….and I hated it. I remember thinking “I don’t know why in the world I have to read this. It’s about a bunch of people talking about their boring everyday lives.” It’s surprising to me, considering I loved reading Little House on the … Continued

OUR TOWN. Every Town. Your Town.

Last Sunday, after a great run, we said goodbye to Dolly Levi and the people of Yonkers, New York. I hope you had a chance to make it to the show. There were so many wonderful moments: the music, the humor, the way Dolly sparkled when she made her grand entrance. I loved all of … Continued

It’s So Nice To Have You Back Where You Belong

If you’ve been watching social media lately, you know that everyone around QCT is excited about HELLO, DOLLY!. Sets are being built, costumes are being sewn, music and dance numbers are being rehearsed to perfection. There’s a delightful energy that is building for this show and it’s contagious. Perhaps, though, no one is quite as … Continued

An American Classic

This week, we celebrated America’s Independence Day on the Fourth of July. It is perhaps one of the only days of the year where most people set aside their political posturing and opinionating and celebrate that we are all Americans and that no matter what may divide us, this shared history and freedom still unites … Continued

Meet Dolly!

If you’ve been around musical theatre very long, you’ve undoubtedly heard of HELLO, DOLLY!. The musical first opened in 1964, winning 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The show became one of the most iconic Broadway shows of its era (the latter half of the 1960s). It ran for 2,844 performances and was the longest-running … Continued

Mothers, Daughters, and the Five Ladies

If you’ve been following this blog over the last few posts, then you know that the central theme of THE DIXIE SWIM CLUB is friendship, specifically the friendships of women. Perhaps one of the greatest and most significant friendships of most women’s lives is the friendship between mother and daughter. The women of DIXIE all … Continued

Great Friendships Make the Greatest Memories

One of the great things about QCT is the opportunity to get to know new people and hear their stories. With the cast of THE DIXIE SWIM CLUB being made up of only five members, it’s been a little easier than usual for me to get acquainted with the cast of the show. I’ve enjoyed … Continued

Friendship: One of Life’s Greatest Gifts

Friendships have a funny way of surprising us. Often the most extraordinary friendships come from very ordinary circumstances. Two people meet through a job, or perhaps they’re neighbors. Sometimes people start out enemies and wind up bosom buddies. Some friendships come to us for a season, but others last a lifetime. All of these friendships … Continued

The Music Tells the Tale

Over the course of the last few months, this blog has explored various aspects of the story of SWEENEY TODD, and while I have touched a few times on the music of the show, it seems fitting for the music of SWEENEY to get its own post the week we open the show (coincidentally also … Continued
