Quincy University Theatre Department to perform “Alice in Wonderland” on May 2

On

Quincy University’s Theatre Department will be performing the play “Alice in Wonderland” on May 2 in MacHugh Theatre.

The version being performed was written by director Connie Phillips. It was previously performed at the Quincy Community Theatre over 15 years ago with a cast of all children.

The show features the storyline of a little girl, Alice, who ends up lost in a mystical land and meets a wide array of unique characters. The show will feature original dialogue and music written by Phillips. The part of Alice will be played by Ann Schuhriemen.

This show is considered to be an extremely special one to the department as it will be Connie Phillips’ final show at Quincy University. She will be retiring from her teaching position at the school after serving as the Theatre Department’s director for 15 years.

“It was a really hard decision for me, but it feels like the right time,” Phillips said.

Student athletes combine to make up roughly 50% of the Quincy University student body; and with athletes comes injuries. At any point during the school year it is likely that at least one student athlete can be seen hobbling across campus on their way to class. A school with such an injury inclined student population would certainly make sure that all of their facilities could accommodate the students who so proudly wear Q.U. brown on the field right? Questions have been raised recently regarding just how handicap friendly Q.U. actually is. Q. U. buildings are investigated and compared based on their handicap accessibility.
