The Longwood Players

There’s a place for everyone in the theater…

About us

The Longwood Players, Inc. is a nonprofit theater company based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Longwood Players was established in 1998, producing its first musical (Hair) in 1999 at the Mass College of Art. In 2003, The Longwood Players incorporated as a 501c(3) and expanded its season to include two full productions and a cabaret fundraiser. Also in 2003, Longwood moved to its current home at the Cambridge YMCA Theater with its production of Cabaret, the inaugural production in the beautifully-renovated Victorian theater housed in the YMCA. Originally built in 1897, the theater was shut down in the 1970s and reopened for theatrical performances. Now the theater company in residence at the Cambridge YMCA, Longwood continues to produce 3 productions per year, and has recently expanded its season to include summer programming. The Longwood Players is led by a Board of Directors and a Management Staff, who dedicate their time and talent to managing and growing the company.

Our members comprise individuals from all walks of life and include professionals and students from the Greater Boston area and beyond. Our members are diverse, and consist of long-time participants of community theater, first-timers seeking a supportive artistic community, students of the dramatic arts, and even those headed for Broadway. Whatever your background or aspiration, we warmly welcome anyone with an interest in the art form of theatre to join our group. Indeed, participation in community theater can take many shapes and forms. Please contact us to see how you can get involved.
