Quality Community Theater on Boston's North Shore
The Quannapowitt Players, Inc. have been in the business of providing quality community theater for 80 years. QP is an all volunteer organization that produces four shows a year in a converted 1853 two room school house in Reading, MA. The unique black box theater seats 150.
Renown for their depth of talent, both in the actors who are featured on stage and the imaginative designers who build, light and produce the “magic,” QP provides an affordable theater alternative in the greater Boston area.
