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!
