Quality Community Theater on Boston's North Shore
The Quannapowitt Players, Inc. have been in the business of providing affordable and quality community theater for 83 years in an volunteer-run converted two room schoolhouse in Reading, MA. Renown for their depth of talent, both in the actors who are featured on stage and the designers who build, light and produce the “magic” on stage, QP provides an affordable alternative in the greater Boston area. Come join us for a performance. We guarantee you will be delighted by the quality and craftsmanship of our performers and designers!

A Special Announcement from the Quannapowitt Players
March 17, 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting everyone. QP is obviously no different. QP will be postponing our production of Romeo and Juliet which was scheduled to open next week. And we are cancelling our final show of the 2019-20 season California Suite which was having auditions next week.
If you have tickets for Romeo and Juliet we will be in touch to reschedule with new dates when they are scheduled. If you have tickets for California Suite we will be reaching out to you as soon as we can with more information. This is a such a unique situation, it is going to take some time to work it all out so please be patient.
This decision is the only sane one to make, but it is heartbreaking too as so many QP volunteers have contributed so much to make this 83rd season a success – with their time. talents and creativity. It is also sad that we will not see you – our patrons and our friends who always give us the energy and support to produce great plays in our little black box theater!
Please stay healthy so we can all enjoy theater together again soon!
