About QP

Quality Community 1937 - 2011The Quannapowitt Players, Inc. mission is to produce quality and affordable theater, encouraging the arts in our community. 

QP has provided quality, community theater for over 80 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, that has full handicap accessibility and parking.

QP has a volunteer membership of approximately 100 thespians and has a ticket sales/season subscription base of over 500 patrons. Our membership comes from all walks of life and we prosper from the diversity these dedicated people bring to our theater.

QP is a member of Arts Reading https://www.artsreading.org/, American Association of Community Theaters (AACT) https://aact.org/, the Eastern Massachusetts Association of Community Theatres’ (EMACT) http://www.emact.org and StageSource https://www.stagesource.org/ .
