Reston Community Players Launches ‘Access to the Arts’ Initiative

Reston Community Players is exploring new ways to get youth in the community to experience live theatre.

The nonprofit organization, which has been producing theatrical productions since 1966, launched a new initiative that allows area students to receive discounted tickets for its productions.

The program, Access to the Arts, allocates blocks of discounted tickets for select shows.

Jolene Vettese, RCP’s president, said many of the organization’s productions contain themes and messages that are relevant to today’s youth.

“We believe strongly that young people should have wider and more affordable access to performing arts events in their communities,” Vettese said.

Discounts are available for schools and community groups online. Individuals cannot purchase discounted tickets.
