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!

Here is what is Coming Next!
Updated 2020 – 2021 Season
QP will be starting the 2020-21 Season with Romeo and Juliet which was in rehearsal and ready to open when we shut down due to the Covid-19 virus in March. Dearly Beloved scheduled for September is canceled. We hope to bring this show back along with California Suite which was to be the final show of this season, into our following season in 2021-2022!
Our goal is to keep our normal season schedule starting with Romeo & Juliet opening September/October. Will know more as the time goes on and will update QP plans and season here on website and on our Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/20904031878/
