"As we round the corner into Year 3 of living dangerously, shake the recurring nightmares by sampling a slumber party outside of your own pandemic pod. In these seven “fun houses,” at the intersection of art and serendipity, the halls have mirrors — but you’ll leave thinking life doesn’t look half bad."

"Reston Community Players has produced a fun and lively show with some real comedic moments that the cast serves up well. It’s a nice antidote to cold days and depressing news."

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! The Noble Blades hope you have a safe, warm, wonderful Thanksgiving. While this year has been full of uncertainty, we wanted to share some things that The Noble Blades are thankful for. We're thankful for the Reston Community Players, without whom we wouldn't have a home and ongoing partnership; we're thankful for the strong community that theatre creates, without which we wouldn't have a mission to strive for; and lastly, we're thankful for YOU. Without you, our donors, artists, friends, family, and followers, we wouldn't be where we are today as an organization. This year has been full of hardship, but has also been full of hope, thanks to you. THANK YOU!!! What are you thankful for this year? #GiveThanks #GivingTuesday
With only 8 days away from #GivingTuesday, this means we're almost into December.
