8 million dollars in over run cost is built into the 89 million. That was discussed at the meeting too. So, really it's 81 million. If it's under, it's under, but it won't go over. I disagree that the new schools won't last as long. Architects are committed to building quality structures, not like Ellington and Monroe which were designed to be temporary, both of which are almost…

By your own logic, would a positive effect on the teachers not have a positive effect on the students? It's all cause and effect and Newton's 3rd law. I could quote and reference many sources which could then be rebutted by your own, I'll leave the Googling up to you, I have better ways to spend my time. Something we all seem to agree on is that there is an issue and the current structure…

Perhaps UKWP is trying to equate military service with "on the teat" teaching jobs. Of course there are many big differences, especially for military that are deployed, which is part of the job. There are indeed many public school teachers that see their unionized, teaching monopoly, "part time" job as a public service that demands the same respect as our military. Not many retire with PTSD, or…

And you're making the opposite mistake....saying that each thing, when added together, becomes a total justification. That's not how you justify expenditures. You have to make the case for EACH item in it's own right. And you do that compared to what it would cost to fix it in place...assuming you do have to fix it...which apparently we don't...because it hasn't been done.…

Auditions open for The Emperor’s New Clothes

1 year, 8 months ago by Denise Donley

In this production of action, laughs, and magic tricks, young audiences will participate in the story too

Quincy Community Theatre is opening audition appointments for its QCT on the Road production of The Emperor’s New Clothes, February 16 beginning at 2pm for grades 6-12.

In this highly INTERACTIVE production—packed with action, laughs, and magic tricks—young audiences will participate in the story right alongside the actors. Lots of fun is in store when Peter, the mischievous tailor, comes up with his sure-fire get rich quick scheme—to embarrass the vain Emperor and make off with a basket of gold! Peter uses all of his wit and magic to convince the court he can make magic clothes. Only those who are very smart can see the clothes, he tells them. Everyone pretends they can see the clothes until… someone in the audience shouts out the truth!

QCT is looking for young actors with great versatility – the ability to portray multiple dynamic characters. As performances will be held in “found theatres,” such as a gymnasiums and cafeterias, it is necessary for the actors to fill a room with their voices and energy. Each of the three roles will be double-cast with two different casts that will tour, rotating performances.

Since this is a touring production, the actors must be able to be excused from classes. Actors will not need to miss a full day of school for a performance. Due to the specific, detailed staging of this show, it is unlikely that an actor will be allowed to miss a rehearsal.

Auditionees are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the script, character descriptions, current performances, and rehearsal information, available online at 1qct.org.

All roles are available and all are welcome to audition, regardless of experience. To schedule an audition or for password information, contact the box office at (217) 222-3209.
