New Players Theatre Guild's goal is to foster and promote an active interest in community theatre. It is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to encouraging people of all ages to participate in the joy of creating quality theater for the Montachusett area audiences.
NPTG presents small to large-scale musical productions, themed dinner theater productions and musical reviews for the public. Additionally, NPTG's "Showstoppers" perform musical reviews for public and private functions.
New Players Theatre Guild was founded in 1975 and varies in membership size, but has, at times grown to a membership of over 120 people.
The group is managed by a Board of Directors, elected yearly by the membership, as well as several committees that carry out the various activities of the organization.
Thanks to the cast, crew, directors and especially out Co-Chairs, the Storrs, for making Cabaret 2008 one of our most successful EVER!
Looking For Some Economical Entertainment For Your Function? Consider NPTG’s Showstoppers!
The Showstoppers give you the feel of BIG entertainment at a very reasonable price. All proceeds go to our non-profit organization.
Unfortunately, it is difficult to provide quality musical theatre to our area AND keep tickets affordable. For a number of years, Showstoppers has provided the needed income to allow us to continue to present theatre in Central Massachusetts, while keeping it economically accessible to everyone.
Showstoppers perform "themed" musical presentations, approximately 30 minutes in length, that have varied from "The 50's" to a "Country Jamboree."
The Showstoppers have performed at countless private functions, at Leominster’s Starburst and Johnny AppleseedCelebrations, mayoral inaugurations and on numerous occasions with the Ashby Band.
The following shows are available at the current time:
SONG OF AMERICA - A Choral review celebrating our home, out hope and our freedom 20TH CENTURY CELEBRATION - A decade by decade review of the best music of the last century THE MUSIC OF COLE PORTER - A review celebrating the genius of Cole Porter
