Mission Statement

Reston Community Players is committed to theatrical excellence and professionalism through the promotion of diverse, creative experiences for the education and cultural enrichment of the community.


Reston Community Players (RCP) is committed to excellence in community theatre for Reston, Virginia and metropolitan Washington, D.C.

For more than 40 years, RCP has been an integral part of our growing new town. The success of our theatrical productions (and our longevity!) is an outward sign of our talents and abilities, proving that with a tremendous amount of work, patience, ingenuity, and thousands of hours of commitment, it is possible to make an all-volunteer organization like ours prosper and grow.

Incorporated in 1972 as a non-profit organization, RCP evolved from the Reston Players, a for-profit entity founded in 1966. The Reston Community Players has brought to the public a variety of theatrical experiences over the years, including classics and original plays as well as popular Broadway musicals, dramas, mysteries, and comedies. Partially funded by grants from Fairfax County, in cooperation with the Arts Council of Fairfax County, we welcome one and all, and offer something for everyone:

  • Four major productions per season.
  • Sign-interpreted performances for the deaf and hearing impaired.
  • Member of the Arts Alliance of Reston, Arts Council of Fairfax County, and the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce. Charter member of Washington Area Theatre Community Honors (WATCH).
  • Workshops in the various disciplines of theatre.
  • The Traveling Players, an on-call troupe to provide light entertainment for banquets and other special events.
  • A stage combat troupe, the Noble Blades, provides performance and training with certified instructors.
  • A pool of skilled technicians serve as consultants to other community groups.
  • A scene shop/rehearsal facility with storage space for scenery, costumes, and props.
  • An inventory of costumes, props, and scenery for rental.
  • The Shelton Hall Memorial Scholarship, given annually to a local high school student dedicated to pursuing the performing arts.
  • A level of professionalism rarely aspired to in amateur theatre.
