QUINCY (WGEM) -- The Quincy Community Theatre is bringing the community more virtual productions this Spring.

The production will be an adaptation of the old children's book "Miss Nelson is Missing."

The production will require 4th through 8th-grade child actors and 2 adult roles.

Brendan Shea is the Head of Education/Director of Student Theatre at Quincy Community Theatre. He said the auditions, rehearsals, and final performance will all be done virtually.

"Rehearsals even the auditions and the performance are going to be conducted on Zoom. Or another streaming platform we use called StreamYard. So you know what is interesting about that opportunity is that even though it limits us, we can't be on our stage. Having a virtual show means that anyone can audition for it."

Shea said this will be a special production.

"The concept is really these bright colors kind of zany, sort of cartoon. So we'll use technology to have the actors feel like they're in that world of the picture book when they're performing. So, that should be a different experience for actors for sure," he said.

The virtual auditions will take place via zoom on January 24th and 25th. To sign up for a time slot go to 1QCT.ORG for more information.
