Auditions open at Quincy Community Theatre for ‘Junie B. Jones Is Not a Crook’


QUINCY — Auditions for Quincy Community Theatre’s next production, “Junie B. Jones Is Not a Crook,” will be held Aug. 17 for students in grades 4-12 and adults age 18 and older.

All experience levels, ethnicities and races are encouraged to audition. All auditioning actors will read selections from the script that is available on the QCT website (call 217-222-3209 to get the password to access the script). Rehearsals will easily work with most schedules. Performers may not be called for every rehearsal or for the full length of rehearsal. A schedule will be determined based on actor availability.

Kindergarten isn’t easy, especially when you’re Junie B. Jones. A stealer stole Junie B.’s new furry mittens, then the handsomest new boy at school thinks she’s a nutball. Don’t even get her started on Meanie Jim. Can Junie B. find the crook, fix her friendships, stand up to a bully and still be her lovable, nutball self?

Online registration, detailed audition requirements, audition tips, and character descriptions are available online. Audition appointments may be made by contacting the QCT box office at 217-222-3209.

Performances are Oct. 1-3 and 8-10. Daytime matinees are scheduled for Sept. 30. Actors must be available for all performances.

Quincy Community Theatre offers five major productions, three student productions, various touring performances and a variety of workshops and classes each year. Programming is supported in part by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council. QCT’s media sponsors are STARadio, Spectrum Reach, WGEM and KHQA. For information about upcoming shows and classes or to buy tickets, call the box office at 217-222-3209.
