QCT’s “The Mountaintop” Streams Aug. 11th
Quincy Community Theatre's next Virtual performance "The Mountaintop" streams August, 11th. Here is how you can watch!
Quincy Community Theatre, like all other organizations across the United States, has had to find creative ways to continue operating during this COVID-19 crisis. One of the main ways that Quincy Community Theatre has done this is through "virtual" performances, I was lucky enough to perform in one of there virtual performances in June. Now Quincy Community Theatre is debuting their latest Virtual Performance called "The Mountaintop" an extremely culturally relevant show about the final night of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s life.
On the Quincy Community Theatre's website they say...
"Written by American playwright Katori Hall, The Mountaintop is a gripping re-imagination of events the night before the assassination of the civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. On April 3, 1968, after delivering one of his most memorable speeches, an exhausted Dr. King retires to his room at the Lorraine Motel while a storm rages outside. When a mysterious stranger arrives with some surprising news, King is forced to confront his destiny and his legacy to his people."
This virtual performance takes place Tuesday, August 11th, but in order to see the virtual performance you will need a "Ticket" these ticket's are free and can be reserved at 1qct.org starting on Monday, August 3rd. There will also be a talk back post show with Artistic Director Brandon Thomsen, and the cast.
Quincy Community Theatre is asking for any sort of donations that you can make to the theatre to help them through this extremely difficult time. The Theatre lives off of ticket sales, and with the entire season postponed due to COVID-19 they really need our support, if you would like to donate CLICK HERE!
