Now the citizens of Missouri need to prepare for the "fleecing" their state and local governments are about to put on them, to build a new downtown stadium so Kroenke doesn't have a reason to leave in 2016.

Team America, Naked Gun, Hot shots all the way back to The Three Stooges, and Charlie Chaplin, Hollywood has taken "Assassination attempts" or just plain mud slinging at Dictators or famous people, this is nothing new we need to grow up, and fat face needs to quit giving them material.

I wouldn't be able to give a very educated response to that question, because (having this conversation in work circles) I always understood this franchise agreement to include a fee a cable company would pay to the city of Quincy for sole rights as a cable provider in town. The last couple of years I have learned Adams is the CATV provider at Blessing and many businesses in town, a year ago…

Well said, whiner1!!! Somebody at Sony Pictures Entertainment was desperately trying to be edgy and topical when they approved the production of The Interview (in spite of the fact that the creators of South Park already poked fun at North Korea a decade ago). Truth be told, the screenplay for The Interview probably should have found its' way into the trash can a long time ago. No theater owner…

The NFL officially announced earlier today (12/20/14) that no team will be moving to Los Angeles for the 2015 season. So the St. Louis Rams are staying put, for the time being. Happy holidays, sports fans! :-)

Auditions open for The Emperor’s New Clothes

1 year, 10 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.
