Producer/Director's Note from the program
Past Shows - 1969 The Unsinkable Molly Brown
The Peter Quince Performing Company adopted its name from a character in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Quince was a carpenter who organized his friends into an acting troupe to entertain for royalty. He worked under adverse conditions: none of the cast was professional, there was no rehearsal stage until shortly before the performance, and there were few props. By working with determination under these conditions, Quince reflected the spirit of the theater which we are seeking to do.

The world of the stage is unique; much time is needed when none is to be had; days drag slowly on until suddenly there are no more. Luck and magic horns are friends who wait too long but are never too late. Money is spent which doesn't exist to create a dream if it's good or a nightmare if it's not.

Most of all, theater is a group phenonomen of many people coordinated to produce a section of life into which another group can momentarily live.

Manitowoc and this area have shown us the highest appreciation by placing faith in our new venture and coming to see out finished product tonight. We all thank you and invite you to relax and step into that world we have created for you tonight.

Reed Humphrey
