Providence Players invite students and seniors to free previews

The Providence Players of Fairfax, a nonprofit community theater troupe performing at the James Lee CommunityCenter, is offering a free preview performance of each upcoming production this season for local students (and their teachers and guests) and seniors.

The first free preview in this series will be Thursdays, Oct. 2, 7 p.m., for “Of Mice and Men,” a play based on the classic American novella by John Steinbeck. The show will be at the James Lee Community Center Theater, 2855 Annandale Road in Falls Church.

Following each preview performance, members of the audience will have an opportunity to discuss the play and production with the cast and artistic team and take a backstage tour.

The next Providence Players show will be “The Lion, the Witch, and Wardrobe” in December. Auditions take place Sept. 29 and 30, 7-9:30 p.m. Rounding out the season are “Other Desert Cities” in March 2015 and “The Glass Mendacity” in May.

The free previews offer a great opportunity to learn about community theater, experience a live show at no cost, and, for students, earn extra credit in theater and English classes. For more information, contact the Providence Players,


  1. "The Glass Mendacity"? Is this a new play, an auto-correct oops for "The Glass Menagerie"?

  2. It's a parody of Tennessee Williams plays - looks hilarious.
