We here in the Tri-States are truly lucky to have an organization like Quincy Community Theatre. I have been a part of the organization in shows like The Music Man, Beauty and the Beast, and I'm currently in the production of Clue. This is a top-notch community organization and I am excited to see what Deborah Currier brings to the theater.
