Producer's Note from the program
Good evening ladies and gentlemen and welcome to PQPC’s 37th season and our production of Honk! This season marks my second and final season as producer. It has brought many challenges and difficulties, but it also has had a lot of the same old Quince magic.
This season I was blessed with an outstanding directing staff. Tricia and Chris thank you for taking the position of pit director so late and doing such a great job. Aimee you have been a great director and an even better friend. Erik your organizational skills are incredible and so valuable. Scuba your choreography is amazing but even more amazing are you.
This is what makes Quince what it is, the great people. Never have I worked with such talented and fun young people as in my Quince years. It is so great to see us come together and put a show on for you. So sit back, relax and enjoy what us young people can do.
Mark Quistorf – Producer
Director's Note from the program
Hello everyone and thank you so much for coming to Peter Quince’s production of Honk! When I was fifteen years old, I sat down and made a list of everything that I wanted to do in my lifetime. At the top of that list was to direct a show at the Capitol Civic Centre. I never thought that it would actually happen for me, especially at the age of 21. But Peter Quince has provided an opportunity in my life that I am truly grateful for and honored to be a part of.
When I first read the script of Honk! I knew instantly that this was the show that I wanted our company to do. Not only is it a fun show for all ages with great music and dance numbers, but it speaks of issues in today’s society that are truly heartbreaking. In a world of plastic surgery, diets, eating disorders and a general lack of confidence from today’s youth, Honk! speaks of the inner beauty that one possesses, which far surpasses any physical perfection that one may have.
This is a truly inspirational tale, and I hope that not only will you sit back and enjoy this evening’s performance, but you will take from it the message of not judging a book by its cover, but looking further into a person’s soul to find out whom they are. Thank you so much for attending tonight’s show, your support is greatly appreciated!
