QAAW Summer Blog: Another Summer of Winking!

Hello, everyone!

My name is Ally. Some of you may know me from my previous summers with Quick As A Wink, where I assisted in the running and planning of our summer activities and camp programming. Surprise! I’m back!

I have been a proud member of QAAW since I was about ten years old and most recently appeared as Gertrude in 2018’s production of Seussical. I have also worked at our summer camps in 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 (and even assisted last years’ summer students with the odd task as well!) I love working with young theatre enthusiasts, and the youth here in our community are so amazing and special. I feel blessed to be back!

I’ll be operating mostly behind the scenes for the next few weeks, working away on familiarizing myself with our summer camp scripts and updating our QAAW social media accounts. However, be sure to keep an eye open out in the community for Elle and Morgandy, our wonderful summer employees! They have been hard at work these past few weeks hosting trivia, preparing for camps, and even making some appearances in our local schools. I believe they also have some appearances out and about in the coming weeks – I’ve heard inklings of some farmer’s market visits and parades, wink wink! – so if you see them in the community, please say hello!

There’s lots going on at the theatre right now; we just wrapped up our wonderful production of Legally Blonde, and work is beginning now on our next production: Dracula! Stay tuned for updates on this spooky upcoming show, and if you haven’t seen it already, have a look at the cast announcement. You may see a familiar face!

Also, don’t forget about our weekly Pub Trivia, which happens each Tuesday at 7pm thanks to our wonderful hosts at the Spitfire Arms. It’s only $2 per person to play, and prizes – including a Spitfire gift card! – are on the line!

And finally, of course, don’t forget that summer camp registration is now open! For more info or to register your child, click here. Early bird registration ends June 22nd, so don’t miss your chance at a reduced rate.

That’s all for now. I can’t wait for you to hear from Elle and Morgandy in the near future. Talk again soon!
