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.
