A Musical Theatre Celebration in Honor of Paul Denckla
Quincy Community Theatre’s Main Stage
Tickets: $15.00 | Additional donations will be accepted
Please join Quincy Community Theatre and Joe Tokarz, the professional actor who starred as Jean Valjean in QCT’s 2014 production of LES MISÉRABLES, for A Musical Theatre Celebration in Honor of Paul Denckla, a benefit performance supporting QCT’s Technical Director, on Saturday, June 27th at 7:30 PM.
Starring Mr. Tokarz and a few special guests, this extraordinary night will feature the best of Broadway, including musical theatre classics, new favorites, and some special surprises from members of the LES MISÉRABLES cast.
Denckla, who was hired as the theatre’s Technical Director in 1992, was recently diagnosed with a rare form of cancer which will become very expensive for his family during the course of treatment. All proceeds from this concert will go directly to assisting Denckla with his medical bills.
