A PLACE FOR ALL
RCP feels strongly that the Players have a responsibility to give back to the community that sustains us.
One way we do that is by offering annual scholarships to local high school seniors (public, private or home schooled) who intend to study the performing arts in college.
The Shelton Hall Memorial Scholarship in the amount of $2,000 is given annually to a local high school student dedicated to pursuing the Performing Arts. The award can be for performers of music, theater, or dance.
The Bruce Marson Memorial Scholarship in the amount of $2,000 is given annually to a local high school student dedicated to pursuing the Performing Arts in Technical Theatre Production. To compete for this scholarship, applicants demonstrate an interest and ability in Lighting Design, Stage Management, Scenic Design, Set Construction, Sound, Property Management, Production Management or Costume Design.

Periodically, RCP presents dance classes or workshops taught by local choreographers or visiting guest instructors. These classes are geared toward providing local dancers a chance to either brush up on their skills or learn some new ones. At this time, we do not have any classes scheduled. Keep checking this page for updates on upcoming classes or workshops.
Access to the Arts
Reston Community Players feels strongly that young people should have wider and more affordable access to performing arts events in their communities. This is especially true for performances containing themes and messages that are important and relevant for today’s youth.
RCP’s Access to the Arts education initiative allocates blocks of discounted tickets at each performance of select shows specifically for use by students. Please see below for our current Access to the Arts offers.
April 28 to May 14, 2023
$15 student tickets are now available through RCP’s Access to the Arts
A block of tickets has been allocated at each performance of Cabaret. To reserve tickets within these blocks, individuals may contact Joey Olson at President@restonplayers.org
In addition to a wide selection of contemporary clothing (from the 1980s onward), RCP’s costume and prop collection includes pieces representing various historical periods & specialty shows. We offer pieces from Mary Poppins, Shrek, Beauty & The Beast, Les Miserables and many others.
Costume and Prop rental inquiries can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
