Throughout the run of its upcoming production of Sylvia, QCT and the Quincy Humane Society will sell bags of dog treats generously donated by Petco
Quincy Community Theatre has found the “pawfect” way to entertain and raise money for animals in need!
Throughout the run of its upcoming production of Sylvia, QCT and the Quincy Humane Society will sell bags of dog treats generously donated by Petco. The money raised will help the Quincy Humane Society, a privately funded, no-kill shelter, continue to provide the highest quality services possible to both pet owners and the many animals in their care. In addition to selling dog treats, the Quincy Humane Society will also host a booth at all performances about their programs, services, and pet adoptions—along with a slideshow of currently adoptable animals during intermission.
“As a pet owner, I appreciate everything that institutions like the Quincy Humane Society do,” said Managing Artistic Director Lenny Bart. “How fortunate that QCT is in a position to assist them in their mission.”
In this hilarious story, Greg and Kate have moved to Manhattan after twenty-two years of child-raising in Suburbia. Greg's career, as a derivative trader, has suddenly come to a halt, while Kate's career, as a public-school English teacher, is beginning to offer her more opportunities. Greg brings home a dog he found in Central Park - or that has found him - bearing only the name "Sylvia" on her nametag. Street-smart, sassy, sexy and sarcastic: Sylvia is your typical "Labradoodle". And she quickly becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife. Sylvia offers Greg an escape from the frustrations of his job and the unknowns of middle age. To Kate, she becomes a rival for affection. You’ll be laughing out loud while getting the straight “poop from the pooch” in this hilarious and touching comedy by A.R. Gurney.
Sylvia runs September 12-15 & 19-22 (contains strong language and mature themes). Tickets are $18, on sale now. Sylvia is under the direction of Managing Artistic Director Lenny Bart, with scenic and lighting design by Technical Director Paul Denckla, and costumes by resident designer Anna Grywalski. Paige Mueller serves as the stage manager.
Dog treats are a minimum $1 donation, on sale during performances of Sylvia. For more information about the Quincy Humane Society, visit quincyhumanesociety.org.
