Clothesline - Version  5-120.jpg

QNEK Productions

ONCE UPON A CLOTHESLINE

By Aurand Harris

Saturday June 27 2:00 pm

Children’s Show 

Celebrating the 70th Anniversary of the Production

Pinno and Pinnette, two clothespins, are getting acquainted while they hold a quilt on the line, when the ugly Black Spider threatens Pinnette! Pinno rises to her defense, but in his eagerness falls to the ground. He is discovered by Mrs. and Junior Ant, and revived by Dr. Beetle with the help of some odd instruments — a saw, an axe, a bicycle pump, and a dinner bell! But no sooner is Pinno revived than Pinnette tumbles into the Spider’s web! It takes all the efforts of Pinno and his hilarious posse to rescue her.

Once Upon a Clothesline celebrates its 70th anniversary and director, Lynn Leimer, is thrilled to mount this wonderful children’s story, as she herself played Junior Ant 50 years ago. Aurand Harris was one of the country’s most popular writers of children’s plays, and was the recipient of many awards including The Chorpenning Playwriting Award and an NEA Fellowship for Creative Writing QNEK Productions Youth Ensemble performs in this delightful tale of whimsey.

Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 PM

Sundays at 2:00 PM

The final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein was destined to become the world’s most beloved musical. When a postulant proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually captures the heart of the stern Captain, and they marry. Upon returning from their honeymoon they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captain’s immediate service in their navy. The family’s narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in the theatre. The motion picture version remains the most popular movie musical of all time.

The Rescignos - August 29 (1)The Rescignos

Saturday, August 29

7:30 PM

Donning sweater vests and each armed with a razor-sharp wit, Paul and Robbie Rescigno are like Cain and Abel, but with more singing and less fratricide. In The Rescignos, the titular twin brothers star in a musical comedy show that hearkens back to an old-school vaudeville act with contemporary material and brand-spanking new music. If “old-school” feels redundant, we only need to remind you: they’re twins. Redundancy is what they do best.

Tickets $10
*Suggested for Adults Only

Nunsense A Men! 

By Dan Goggin

September 11, 12, 13, 18, 19 & 20

Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 PM
Sundays at 2:00 PM

 

The Order of the Little Sisters of Hoboken take over a high school auditorium to hold a fundraising variety show to raise money to bury several sisters (who were accidentally poisoned by their cook). They must inter the nuns before the health inspector comes and finds the dead nuns in their freezer! Fraught with hilarity, both Catholic and otherwise, we watch as 5 nuns try to perform their planned performance amidst chaos and calamity.

Nunsense A-Men! is basically the original Nunsense show with all of the characters being portrayed by male musical comedy performers. Think of it as “Mrs. Doubtfire enters the Convent.” Done totally seriously, this show is, to quote a critic, “no drag.”  A whole new layer of comedy surfaces with lines like “The guys in the old neighborhood still can’t believe I became a nun!” To quote the New York Times: “A change of habit, boy oh, boy!”

Tickets are $15 Adult ~ $13 Senior/Students ~ $7 Community Circle ~ $2 Discount for MAC and QDF Members

Canadian funds at par. ~ Group rates available upon request.

Steel Magnolias

By Robert Hurling

October 9, 10, 11, 16, 17, & 18

Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 PM
Sundays at 2:00 PM

Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, is where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done.  Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle (who is not sure whether or not she is still married), the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town’s rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, (“I’m not crazy, I’ve just been in a bad mood for forty years”); an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M’Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby (the prettiest girl in town), is about to marry a “good ole boy.” Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy when, in the second act, the spunky Shelby (who is a diabetic) risks pregnancy and forfeits her life. The sudden realization of their mortality affects the others, but also draws on the underlying strength—and love—which give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.
