On Q Productions Is Ready for Season 3

Charlotte is filled with talented, hard-working people who are helping to nurture and expand the local arts scene. One of those individuals is Quentin "Q" Talley. You've likely heard of this actor, slam poet, musician, and all-around creative guy. He's the founder and artistic director of On Q Productions, which is in residence at N.C. Blumenthal Performing Arts Center.

They recently announced the kickoff of the theatre company's third season, "The Sound of Music," with this creative video. Q says the performance was inspired by Janelle Monae's "Tightrope" and Gnarls Barkley's "Transformer." Watch the video below and see Q and company perform on the streets of Uptown.

On Q Productions is currently offering a two-for-one special on season passes. The "Season 3: The Sound of Music Kickoff" concert takes place next Friday, July 29 at McGlohon Theater at Spirit Square. It's described as a "one-night-only show that will feature amazing musical talents who will share their instrumental and vocal gifts with the Charlotte community as they interpret each genre in the season." Local singer and Disturbing Tha Peace/Def Jam artist Rudy Currence is the headliner (his new single, "Cold Hands Warm Heart," is available on iTunes), and the event is being hosted by Q and fellow slam poet Bluz.
