“Ghost Light” Campaign supports QCT
Quincy Community Theatre has launched The Ghost Light Campaign, a chance for you to give back to the theatre.
Coronavirus has strongly impacted all of are lives in so many different ways, but one of the hardest hit areas from coronavirus is the live performance industry, from concerts, dances, and theatre. We are lucky enough in the town of Quincy to have the brilliant Quincy Community Theatre, a theatre that puts on equity level productions with local talent from all over the Tri-States, earlier this week Quincy Community Theatre announced they would have to postpone the 2020 season of shows until 2021 (you can read about that announcement by clicking here). That obviously is going to cause a massive financial problem for Quincy Community Theatre, and so they launched The Ghost Light Campaign, a way to give back to the theatre during this crisis.
The Ghost Light Campaign, which was announced on their website you can see by clicking here, is a chance for you to make any dollar amount donation to help the theatre during this crisis, in a statement on their website they say...
"The Ghost Light Campaign was created in an effort to supplement the financial losses the theatre will incur due to the 2020 season’s postponement. Ticket sales account for more than 60% of our annual revenue, and show sponsorships and stagebill advertisements account for an additional 10%....QCT has a nearly 100-year history in our community. With your help, we will be here for 100 more."

I have felt so lucky to be a part of Quincy Community Theatre since moving to Quincy last year, I'm so sad to not get a chance to perform Chicago the Musical until 2021 but with your support and donations to the theatre their will be shows again in the future!
