EXIT, PURSUED BY A BEAR on Feb. 13

Queen City Queen Theatre Collective
Feb. 13
Below Zero Lounge [Over-the-Rhine]

Directed by Hannah Gregory

Cast: Ally Mellick, Noah Berry, Ellyn Broderick, Jack Manion & Rhys Boatwright

In this play loosely inspired by Shakespeare’s “A Winter’s Tale,” Nan has decided to teach her abusive husband Kyle a lesson. With the help of her friend Simon (acting as her emotional — and actual — cheerleader) and a stripper named Sweetheart, she tapes Kyle to a chair and forces him to watch as they reenacts scenes from their painful past. In the piece de resistance, they plan to cover the room in meat and honey so Kyle will be mauled by a bear. Through this night of emotional trials and ridiculous theatrics, Nan and Kyle are both freed from their past in this smart, dark revenge comedy.

Please note: performance is in the second floor Cabaret space, which is not handicap accessible.

Artists Wanted for QUEERBARET at Queen City Queen Theatre Collective

QCQTC_logoCALLING ALL ARTISTS!

We are so excited to announce that November will bring our second annual QUEERBARET!

We want YOU to come join us as a performer for this magical night of queer theatrical bliss. Here are the guidelines for your material:

  • Material should be something about which you are passionate, and would otherwise not have the opportunity to perform. This is your chance to take a swing at that song/scene/monologue that falls outside of your age, gender, sexuality, race, type etc.
  • Ideally, material should not exceed 5 minutes in length. (Exceptions could be made based on number of submissions.)
  • You may submit as groups, or if you do not have a scene partner in mind, submit the material anyway. Maybe someone else’s submissions will line up and I can pair you.
  • If you would like to do a musical selection, a piano accompanist will be provided, but additional instrumentation would be up to you to organize.
  • Each number will be the responsibility of the performer(s) to rehearse- though we will have 1-2 joint rehearsals for brief coaching/tweaking and to rehearse flow of the evening.

Please submit your idea, any technical requirements, and (ideally) a copy of the material to lindseyamercer@gmail.com no later than TUESDAY NOVEMBER 1.

Can’t wait to see what you’ve all got cooking!

THE ANXIETY PROJECT – Encore on Oct. 10

QCQTC_The Anxiety Project logoTHE ANXIETY PROJECT – ENCORE
Queen City Queer Theatre Collective
Oct. 10
Below Zero Lounge [Over-the-Rhine]

Directed by Lindsey Augusta Mercer

Original cast: Erin Griff Bludworth, Kaleigh Brooke-Dillingham, Hannah Gregory, Andrew Maloney, Erin McCamley, Spenser Smith, & Robert Carlton Stimmel

A new song cycle that explores true stories of suffering, loss, struggle, alienation, friendship, brokenness, love, hate and everything that comes with anxiety and depression disorders. The show combats one of the last great stigmas, giving voice to the people who live it – using the actual words of those for whom this disease is a large part of their lives. At once poignant and touching, this new musical explores the effects of mental illness on our collective minds – and how ignoring it leaves ripples in our social existence.

An encore presentation of The new musical THE ANXIETY PROJECT which was work-shopped and performed this past June. The Encore reading will feature nearly all of the original cast, and will introduce some newly developed material not previously seen.

Please note: performance is in the second floor Cabaret space, which is not handicap accessible.

Free, donations accepted.
