2017 Play Selection Meetings
It is that time of year again! Quad City Music Guild needs to choose the five musicals that will comprise our 2017 season and we need your help. There will be two play selection meetings open to anyone who wishes to share ideas on potential musical productions. The first will be held on Tuesday, April 5th and the second will be held on Thursday, April 14th. Both meetings will begin at 7:00 P.M. in the Music Guild lobby.

There are no restrictions concerning who can participate and we want to make certain that our season includes both new and previously successful shows. Additionally, we want to choose shows that will appeal to our audiences as well as having a variety of available roles for male and female actors/actresses of all ages. We would also like our five shows to encompass a wide variety of theatrical/historical periods and styles. If you intend to offer ideas about shows for production, please consider the following:  
  • propose new musicals for which the production rights are available.
  • suggest shows that have not been seen on the Guild stage in the last ten years.
  • identify shows for which you might be willing to serve in a particular capacity on the directing/production staff. 
Information regarding shows you may recommend can be found at the web sites of the companies that own the rights to the musicals. Examples include: Tams-Witmark Music Library, Music Theatre International, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Steel Spring and Samuel French, Inc.

If you are unable to attend either the April 5th or the April 14th meetings, but have suggestions, simply let Mike Schmidt (mschmidt@qconline.com) or Troy Stark (troydstark@me.com) know and your suggestions will be shared with the group. We hope that you will help us to create another memorable season!
