The Quincy Senior High School theatre will close this school year with Neil Simon’s comedy “Rumors.”  The play takes place in the wealthy New York home of Charley and Myra Brock.  The high profile couple is celebrating their anniversary with a party when a mysterious crime takes place.  The first couple, Chris & Ken Gorman, arrive to the party to find Myra missing and an unconscious Charley bleeding.  The Gormans, played by senior Sami Bearden and junior Jake Inman, try to figure out what happened before the next guests arrive.  When Lenny and Claire arrive, played by juniors Trey Ehrhart & Meg Stalder, they are fed a pile of lies to cover up the mysterious disappearance of the Brock couple.  Other guests include a therapist, played by senior Alex Waters, an eccentric cook, played by senior Emma Figge, a politician, played by senior Clayton Weirather, and a suspicious wife, played junior by Abby Biswell.  Rumors fly through the air as the Gormans try to cover up any possible scandal.  However, the couple struggles with remembering what they told to who!  This famous farce is filled with physicality, witty lines, and hilarious banter.  The comedy is under the direction of Meghan Buckley and Tom Burnett.  Production dates are May 5, 6, 7 at 7:30 pm in the QHS Theatre.  Tickets are priced at $10.00 for adults and $7.00 for students.  Tickets are available at the door or by calling the QHS Music Office at 224-3774.



 

The Friends of the Performing Arts is working with the QHS Music Department to help raise $100,000 for new uniforms with an Adopt-A-Uniform Campaign.   Donations of all amounts are welcome, however “adopting” a complete uniform is $650.  A personalized label can be sewn inside and designated in honor of, or in memory of whomever the donor chooses. 

 

Organizers are reaching out to parents, alumni, and to the community as a whole for support.  The QHS Marching Blue Devils are prominent at year-round community events, including the Veteran’s Day Parade, the Alzheimer’s Association Memory Walk, Bridge the Gap, the Dogwood Parade, and other groundbreakings and celebrations.  The Band also represents Quincy at competitions throughout the tri-states, and later this year will perform at Walt Disney World and in the Citrus Bowl Parade.
