All the Way from Columbus

by RoxyRegionalTheatre on April 15, 2011

Hello folks! My name is Michael Quinechett and I’m thrilled to be here at the Roxy Regional Theatre during the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War and doing a musical commemorating this historical event! What an opportunity for all of us to be entertained and educated at the same time.

I’m originally from and still reside in Columbus, Ohio, the state’s capital. My love for acting came out of my love for performing specifically watching Michael Jackson. From there I found out about plays and musicals, and the rest, as they say, is history.

In the musical The Civil War, I play the role of Clayton Toler, a married slave who is torn away from his wife Bessie when they get sold on the auction block. “If Prayin’ Were Horses” is their duet being sung during the auction and it depicts the auction and it depicts Clayton’s endless sorrow, his devotion towards his wife and his prayer life, which he beautifully parallels to riding horses.

Thanks for reading my blog. Hope to see you at the show!
