About QP

Quality Community 1937 - 2011The Quannapowitt Players, Inc. have been providing quality, community theater for 79 years in a converted 1853 Little Red School House.  QP is an all volunteer-run organization renown for their depth of talent, both in the actors who are featured on stage and the designers who build, light and produce the stage “magic.”

QP provides an affordable theater option in the greater Boston area. Come join us for a show. We do 4 full productions each year, a balanced season of comedy, mystery, drama and farce.  We guarantee you will be delighted by the quality and craftsmanship of our performers and designers!

The QP Theater is a historic building in the town of Reading  Massachusetts, which has been converted from a school house to a delightful black-box performance space, with intimate seating for 150 patrons, full handicap accessibility and parking.

QP has a volunteer membership of approximately 100 thespians and has a ticket/season subscription base of over 600 patrons. Our membership come from all walks of life and we prosper from the diversity these dedicated people bring to our theater.

QP is a member of American Association of Community Theaters (AACT) and the Eastern Massachusetts Association of Community Theatres’ (EMACT). Click Here to go to the EMACT home page and check out the EMACT Festival Winner and Nominees!
