Producer's Note from the program
Past Shows - 2001 High Society
Good evening and welcome to Peter Quince Performing Company's 33rd season! High Society is a story about change. Tracy realizes who she really is and what she wants to be. Members of Quince go through that same process of discovery. Being a member of this organization allows young people the opportunity to "play around" in different areas of theater, while learning what they are capable of. We stretch the limits of normal expectations by demanding leadership and responsibility of all our members. Each member of this year's case and crew has surpassed expectation. Their hard work is evident in the performance you are about to see. Thank you for coming and enjoy!

Directors' Note from the program
Past Shows - 2001 High Society
There is something magical about the Peter Quince Performing Company, such as the way 50 or so young people, most with 10:00 curfews, can put on a show that will dazzle you with song and dance. Not only are these 12-23 year olds the actors and actresses, they are also the company. They produce, direct, design, build, paint the set, and play in the pit orchestra.

I am proud of them all and want to thank them. They built, sang, dances and played my dream's vision for this show while adding their own. A special thanks to Steve and Marsha.

Please enjoy the show tonight. Thank you for supporting community theater and the dreams of some determined and hard working young people.
