QP August 2011 Prez Update
The theater at QP is alive and busting with energy and talent this summer as the cast and crew for our upcoming World Premiere of “ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE – a celebration of life” fine tunes their craft. Fresh, new arrangements of the Beatle’s anthology have been written by Mario Cruz, hot new choreography by Johnnie Pirroni, Jeremy Cummins, James J Girgenti and Courtney Blanch are heating up the floor. The crew has assembled and amazing set with many secrets to entertain you, and one of the most talented group of singers are harmonizing their way to slip inside your hearts telling a heartfelt story or the bond between a mother and son and their best of friends. Please plan on joining us enjoy 32 of the Beatle’s classics including “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds”, Hold Me Tight”, “I Want to Hold Your Hand” and the tile of the show, “All You Need is Love” to mention just a few.

Girgenti, Mario Cruz and the FABulous cast.
As House Manager Donna would like to give a very sincere thank you to Lisa Atkinson, Jason Benagh, Anna Bruce, Marc Capizzi, Barbara Dempsey-West, Marcia Friedman, Carolyn Kelly, Allan Kent, Rachel Krupski, Alissa Krupski, Hugh Metzler and Mark West for getting rid of and beating back the weeds into submission at QP on recent work days! There are no more four foot weeds in front of the playhouse or up the new ramp to front door. The wisteria was cut back so patron cars don’t get scratched. The overgrown bushes have been way pruned back from the back lobby walkway. You can even see sun back there now! A borrowed truck was loaded to the top of the cab with brush and leaves and weeds – and the contents are now mulching at the Wakefield dump. And the canopy area walkway, railings etc. was pressure washed so the mold is mostly gone and we are ready to fix the awning and put it up over the back lobby walkway. Yes we got the permit! They should be taking the canopy away this week to recover. Thanx to everyone who have helped make the QP yard look better! It was very much appreciated … next up is clapboard and sill rot and then painting before we put up the new plastic ‘Q’ created by Jay Stone. This new Q will not rot out! 75 for 75: Look forward to our new FUN raising opportunities coming this year! Plenty of surprises are in store, lots of fun, and of course, helping our special theater. See you in September! (Who’s now humming that song?)
