Quincy Senior High School will present Li’l Abner on November 8, 9,10, and 11 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 12 at 2 pm in the Quincy Senior High Theatre. More than 150 students from the Music, Theatre and Art Departments of QHS will combine their talents to bring Li’l Abner to life.
The audience will be transported to a time long ago when citizens anxiously awaited their “comic strip” fix each week with the purchase of their Sunday newspaper! The characters of Dogpatc,h U.S.A. will bring the innocence and humor of this time gone by to life on the QHS stage.
Reserved tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students. The musical will be accompanied by the QHS Orchestra. The production is directed by Meghan Buckley and Kathleen Dooley. Paul Shelor is the vocal director and Gary Handrick, Dave Buckley, Blaine Barnes and Bronson Bybee oversee the technical design of the show.
Tickets may be reserved beginning October 23 by calling the QHS Music Office at 217-224-3774. A spaghetti supper will precede both Friday and Saturday nights performances from 5 – 7 pm in the QHS Cafeteria. Proceeds will benefit the QHS Orchestra and Choir programs.
