Animals rule the world in this magical modern-language retelling of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. A young lioness named Violet is shipwrecked on the weird and wonderful shores of Illyria, where she quickly finds herself entangled in the wild (and wooly) drama of its residents. This high energy comedy is the perfect way to introduce Shakespeare to an elementary school audience!
APOLLO: TO THE MOON • By Mary Hall Surface
QCT ON THE ROAD TOURING SHOW
All his life, Scott wanted to go to the moon. As he sets goals and works hard to achieve them, we’ll learn about NASA, the Apollo missions, and our country’s journey to space. Most importantly, we’ll discover what we can achieve if we keep dreaming and reach beyond our grasp.
IMPRESSIONS OF YESTERDAY
By Wade Bradford
SOLD! Lauren, Sarah, and their mom just purchased a trunk filled with junk—or so they think. While their mom is away, artists and innovators from the Impressionism Movement pop out of the trunk! Mary Cassatt, Thomas Edison, and others teach the girls—and the audience—that inspiration is everywhere. You simply need to “keep your eyes and mind open, and capture whatever makes an impression.”
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!
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.
