Suburban Holidays Nine!

The holiday season may look and feel a little different this year, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t creative ways to celebrate the holidays and still bring you Suburban Holidays! 

How is QP is celebrating you ask, well we are producing five all new short holiday plays by some of our favorite playwrights who are letting us tape the shows to put up on uTube as we cannot invite you back into the playhouse just yet.   


Death by Poinsettia by Dwayne Yancey

Directed by Glenn Wakeley & Donna Corbett 21 MIN

Featuring: Kris Reynolds as Caroline and  Jon Nuquist as Dwayne

The last show of our five week count down to Christmas for Suburban Holidays Nine is here! We hope you enjoy us taking a cue from competitors who start their holiday stories in October on their cable channel!  All five of Suburban Holidays Nine will stay up for your viewing pleasure until 31JAN21.

Please imagine you are sitting in one of the playhouse theater seats watching another great year of our annual holiday FUNraiser ~ Suburban Holidays Nine and you will be – just on a screen this year!

Suburban Holidays has become a cherished tradition that we did not want to miss doing – even in these COVID times.   So with six feet distancing, a lot of hand sanitizing, exceptional actors, no kissing or hugging, small casts, shorter plays, minimal sets, enthusiastic directors,  and a couple of great camera men who volunteered their time to tape and edit,  we are keeping our tradition going!

Please see the tab on SH9 Background for interesting facts, details of the playwrights and how we taped SH9!

We do hope in this season of love, peace and generosity that you consider making a donation to support QP’s Annual FUNraiser after you watch No. 9!   Yes our ninth year and looking forward to No. 10!
