There’s a place for everyone in the theater…

About us

The Longwood Players, Inc. is a nonprofit theater company based in the Boston area. 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 the Cambridge YMCA Theater. In 2017, Longwood moved to its new home, Chelsea Theatre Works in Chelsea, MA.

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.
