Romeo and Juliet

Committed to the formation of young theatrical talent and audiences, National Players seeks to celebrate the experience of theatergoing by presenting the world's greatest dramatic literature.

Love can be a thrilling ride -- it bursts the seams of young hearts, making them feel things never felt before… But it can also be a dangerous thing, -- it can split you open and send you past the point of no return. This year, America's longest running classical touring company brings you Shakespeare's most enduring tale, re-imagined, re-invigorated, and irresistibly visceral.

Animal Farm

America's longest running classical touring company, has now reached its 64th consecutive season of touring. Currently the touring program of Olney Theatre Center for the Arts, National Players has earned a distinctive place in American theater. Committed to the formation of young theatrical talent and audiences, National Players seeks to celebrate the experience of theatergoing by presenting the world's greatest dramatic literature.

Revolution has broken out on Manor Farm -- the animals have claimed  their independence!  Humans are banished, and the new “Animal Farm” will be a beautiful egalitarian paradise. Pigs, horses, goats, donkeys and dogs -- all animals are equal.   They can build their new utopia, but can they resist the corruption that led to the human's downfall?  From the author of 1984, this chilling and provocative fable is brought to the stage with the focused clarity and spark you've come to expect from The National Players.
