The Show Must Go On

When you're moved by your muse and the stage calls, it doesn't matter where you live.

That theatre bug is what prompted residents of Moline to start the Quad City Music Guild in 1949. And it's the same bug that has since drawn generation after generation of singers and actors through the guild's doors.

Over half a century this all-volunteer group in western Illinois has entertained hundreds of thousands of audience members eager to see their friends and neighbors perform. Now performing in its newly-renovated theatre, the Music Guild looks ready to entertain the Quad Cities for another 50 years.
