Students to Give Theatrical Showcase
Watch the next generation of performers rock some of Broadway’s greatest hit musicals in Quincy Community Theatre’s Triple Threat Boot Camp Showcase, August 8 at 7:30 PM on the Main Stage.
Featuring over 50 students from across the Tri-States and a live rock band, this special rock musical showcase is the culmination of QCT’s week-long musical theatre intensive program for serious young performers (grades 5-college). Since it was first established in 2008, the Triple Threat Boot Camp has become renowned for its comprehensive instruction in the three musical theatre disciplines: singing, dancing and acting.
Students who were accepted to the Triple Threat Boot Camp submitted letters explaining their passion for theatre and have worked hard to implement the skills learned in class with the scenes and songs to be performed during the showcase.
This marks the first year that new Head of Education/Director of Student Theatre Kelsey Celek has led the camp. Celek, a graduate of Wright State University with a BFA in Acting/Musical Theatre, has traveled the country as an actress and teaching artist, having previously held positions at Missoula Children’s Theater, the Jewish Federation of Greater Dayton, and the Omaha Theater Company.
Joining her are Music Director Megan Miller-Masterman, a Quincy native holding a BME with an emphasis on Choral Music Education, and choreographer Lauren Morgan, a graduate of Wright State University with a BFA in Dance who has spent her time traveling across the United States performing, directing, and choreographing.
Tickets to this rocking Broadway-style revue are only $5, on sale August 3. To purchase tickets, visit the QCT Box Office, located in the Oakley-Lindsay Center, or call (217) 222-3209. House opens at 6:30 PM for general admission seating.
