Hope he enjoyed the last 4 days of freedom because that is the last he will have for quite sometime! He will still be looking over his shoulder.

Funny, I always hear the global warming nuts claim a hot day is from global warming. Of course, a one degree change over 100 years is not noticeable by anyone. But there may not really be any warming, since the urban heat island effect was not well accounted for. And Al Gore isn't a guy doing, you know, science. He is a politician now activist that had his net worth go from $2 million to over…

Well he certainly covered some ground unlike his partner. I would certainly love to commend both the Marshals and local authorities on well conducted communications in an expedited effort to capture Kelly despite him quickly heading south eastward.

It's a cascading problem. Starting in the late 70s, early 80s, hunting became less and less. Parents stopped teaching their kids about firearms and gun safety, and the world because more suburban. Now those kids are adults and the only thing they know about guns is what they get in movies. And so they teach their kids that guns are bad, and the problem worsens. It's not any one thing causing…

Well I'm certainly glad I've long since lost/misplaced my childhood super soakers and cap gun. I'd hate to think I could potentially be punished by law for having had those 'out in the yard'. Yet again, policy makers grasping for straws. What next? My metallic painted handcuffs that have a release switch on the side? Are they going to deem my having those as impersonating…

QCT, studens give a “remarkable” Fathers’ Day

1 month, 4 weeks ago by 0

QCT is asking students throughout the Tri-States to submit a letter explaining why their father is remarkable

 

QUINCY, ILLINOIS, May 27, 2014 –Quincy Community Theatre is looking to make Fathers’ Day a little more “remarkable”!

In conjunction with the upcoming premiere of the Family/Student Theatre musical LARRY THE REMARKABLE PIG (June 12-15), QCT is asking students throughout the Tri-States to submit a letter explaining why their father is remarkable. Every letter, which includes a coloring scene from the show, will be proudly displayed in the entrance to the theatre at every performance. After the show, fathers are encouraged to take their child’s letter from the wall as a special Fathers’ Day gift.

Letter templates are available on the QCT Facebook page, as well as 1qct.org. All letters should be mailed to Quincy Community Theatre, and must be received by Tuesday, June 10th to be displayed.

In this new musical with book and music by former Nickelodeon writer and actor Mark Sarto, a boy and his pig are threatened to be parted in order to put “bacon” on the table. Armed with nothing but the strength of their friendship, this dynamic duo sets out on an amazing journey through their troubled kingdom to overcome all odds, save the kingdom, and discover what being “remarkable” really means.

            Larry the Remarkable Pig is under the direction of guest director Lenny Bart, with music direction and stage management by Paige Mueller, scenic design by Assistant Technical Director Jillian Warburton, lighting design by Technical Director Paul Denckla, and costumes by resident designer Anna Grywalski.

Tickets are $9, on sale now. Performances are at 7:30 PM Thursday-Saturday, with a special Father’s Day performance June 15 at 2:00PM. To purchase tickets, visit 1qct.org, call the QCT Box Office at (217) 222-3209, or visit the QCT Box Office, located in the Oakley-Lindsay Center.
