Our Season

The Quannapowitt Players, Inc. have been in the business of providing quality, volunteer-run, community theater for over 77 years. Renown for their depth of talent, both in the actors who are featured on stage and the technicians who build the “magic”, QP provides an inexpensive alternative to the theater hosted in Boston. Come join us for an evening – we guarantee you will be delighted by the quality and craftsmanship of our performers and technicians!

Do you believe in magic? How else would a man be turned into an ass, and have a fairy queen fall in love with him? How else can you explain bewitching the wrong young lovers to fall in love? But all is well that ends well! Ah, but that is another story. This is Shakespeare’s wonderful romantic comedy about the magic of love conquering all!

My Old LadyBy Israel Horovitz
Directed by Nancy Curran Willis

May 6, 7, 13, 14, 15, 20 and 21, 2016

The story is simple, but the layers of emotions that takes us through are not ! When a son estranged from his father inherits a Paris apartment, he is sure his luck has changed. However, when he travels to Paris to sell the apartment, he finds an old woman living there, who has no plans to move out! A thoughtful drama with ingenious twists!
