Founded in 1998, Quill Entertainment Company is a nonprofit educational organization whose mission is Teaching America’s Heritage Through Story and Song. Quill is dedicated to using entertainment to improve the knowledge of our students and citizens about the important ideals and values found in our past. Since 1998, we have entertained and educated over 40,000 people. We encourage you to supplement the experience of a Quill History Musical by taking advantage of our developed lesson plans and other curriculum aids, available here on our website free of charge. Our musicals need no special lighting, no elaborate sets, and little technological support, so they are easy to travel. What they do need is the audience’s imagination and participation: each of our shows involves the audience in the plot; we use the “live-ness” of theatre to bring history to life.
Ignite a passion for America’s heritage and history by creating an entertaining and educational experience that reconnects Americans with their past. If our youth lose sight of the important, defining events in the history of our nation, it may weaken our ability to remain the beacon for freedom and human rights that our forefathers fashioned.
Our Core Beliefs
- Too many of our youth do not know enough about our nation’s past and the ideals and values that underlie our democracy, the longest-lasting in history.
- Ignorance about our history on the part of our youth bodes ill for the future of our country.
- Entertainment and imagination are the keys to igniting our youth’s interest in learning American history
- Teachers need new, exciting, and easy-to-use educational tools to effectively engage today’s youth.
