Quill's Mission: Teaching America's Heritage Through Story and Song
History Musicals for Students, Families and Communities
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.
Quill provides teachers and students with exciting new tools to enhance their understanding of American history. We hope Quill’s study guides will help you and your students explore the excitement of history. They supply basic information about the characters and also suggest classroom activities that might be of interest.
Quill has written and produced six 50-minute musicals designed to be performed in connection with school history curricula. Each History Musical begins with five students bored with their current history homework assignment. Mr. History magically appears with his History Trunk. He convinces the students to time- travel with him into the past and become the characters they are studying.
Bring History To Life
Quill’s Goal is to ignite a passion for America’s heritage and history by creating an educational and entertaining experience that reconnects Americans with their past. In this increasingly globalized world, it is crucial that we understand who we are and where we’ve come from, as we connect with others. Former Librarian of Congress Daniel Boorstin once said, “Trying to plan for the future without a sense of the past is like trying to plant cut flowers.”
