Remembering Anna Quinlivan

Congratulations to Marcus Myers for receiving an Outstanding Achievement Award in the Best Youth Actor (Musical) category at the August 22, 2020 virtual Eastern Massachusetts Association of Community Theatres (EMACT) DASH Award Gala for his performances as JoJo in HCMT's 2019 Seussical!!! He brought his best to every rehearsal and show and we couldn't be prouder of him! Seussical was directed by Victoria Kirichok-Pratt, music directed by Jose Merlo, and choreographed by Liz Tronni.

Hello HCMT friends & members,

It is with sad hearts that we pass along tragic news from one of our HCMT families.  Anna Quinlivan was a beautiful young woman with whom HCMT had the privilege of working with (both on and offstage, and most recently in “Seussical” for spot and set assistance).  Anna’s family has been involved with HCMT for many years, and our thoughts and prayers go out to the Quinlivan family.

HCMT will be establishing an annual scholarship in Anna’s honor, so young Hingham High students who have worked on the tech side of theater may carry on her dream.  Anyone wishing to make a personal donation to this scholarship may send a check to Hingham Civic Music Theatre, c/o Joel Leonard, 14 Brewster Rd, Hingham, MA 02043.  Please be sure to note on your check, that this donation is for the “Anna Gabrielle Quinlivan Scholarship”.

QUINLIVAN, Anna Gabrielle Age 16, of Hingham, July 31, of cardiac arrest. Beloved daughter of Mark and Julie (Marcus) Quinlivan, adored little sister and best friend of Elisabeth Quinlivan. Cherished granddaughter of Myles and Susan Marcus of Hingham (formerly of Brewster), and John and Celeste Quinlivan of Burlingame, CA. Treasured niece of Jon Marcus of Boston, Anthony and Yoshiko Quinlivan of CA, David and Van Ton-Quinlivan of CA, and Steven and Kathleen Quinlivan of IL. Source of fun and laughter for many loving cousins. Services are private; the community will be invited to celebrate Anna when larger gatherings are allowed. Access to the arts shaped Anna's life and inspired her passions: she was a gifted photographer and planned a career in theater tech on Broadway. Hingham Civic Music Theatre has kindly established the Anna Gabrielle Quinlivan Scholarship for Hingham High School students involved in the tech side of theater. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to HCMT, c/o Joel Leonard, 14 Brewster Rd., Hingham, MA 02043 (please note that your donation is for the Anna Quinlivan Scholarship), or an educational arts organization of your choice.

2020 Season Cancelled

Dear HCMT Member & Supporter,

We hope that you and your family are well during these challenging times.  As part of our HCMT family, you are in our thoughts this year, as we all continue to navigate towards a "new normal".

With that in mind, we wanted to let you know that, based upon CDC and local state guidance on safety precautions related to the COVID-19 global pandemic, and faced with the likely possibility of a resurgence in the fall, Hingham Civic  Music Theatre has voted to cancel our 2020 season.

This heart-breaking decision is made with the realization that, at this time, we can’t guarantee the health and safety of our audiences, actors, designers, staff and volunteers while producing shows in our theatre space.

Although we currently project a return of scheduled events in the  Spring  of 2021, please know that we will be working with our Hingham Town Selectmen and monitoring local conditions to determine exactly when we can reopen with protocols in place to protect the health and safety of all involved.

Creating memorable and entertaining theatrical productions for our audiences, members and actors that have been so loyal and supportive is always our goal.  During this down time, we will be searching for ways to improve our space, and by next spring hope to fill our calendars with fun events of some kind - either online, outdoors, or, as soon as possible, in our theatre space.

We miss everyone so much already and can’t wait to get back to doing what we love. We look forward to the time when we can all safely gather again. Until then, be well and stay safe.

The Board of Hingham Civic Music Theatre
