Quality community theater on Boston’s North Shore

The Quannapowitt Players are seeking new plays for Suburban Holidays, our annual holiday-themed play festival and fundraiser. We are proud to be presenting our thirteenth year of this holiday tradition in 2024!

Play submissions should be between 10 and 20 minutes in length and focus on a holiday. All holidays are welcome! Past plays have focused on everything from Christmas to Arbor Day, and everything in between. Casts of varying sizes are welcome, as are shows that feature children. Please keep in mind that the festival is family friendly, so plays with excessive profanity or other inappropriate material are discouraged.

Five to six shows will be selected for production. All submissions will be kept on record and consulted for future years. Our selected playwrights will receive a 100 dollar stipend and will be produced as part of Suburban Holidays 13 in November 2024, with full production support (lights, sound, costumes, and minimalist set).

The deadline for submissions is July 31, 2024. Playwrights will be contacted by August 31, 2024, regardless of whether their play has been selected or not. If you have submitted a play in the past, please do not resubmit the same play unless there have been significant revisions.

Any questions, and all submissions, should be directed to producer Nick Gould at qpsuburbanholidays@gmail.com. We look forward to reading your work!
