About Us

Michael Donahue as George and Chuck O’Toole as Paul in “Moon Over Buffalo.”

For over two decades, Providence Players of Fairfax has built one of the region’s best community theaters: an award-winning, community-supported, membership theater company committed to providing quality, affordable theater to the residents of Fairfax and the greater Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. area.

We are extremely proud of what we have accomplished. We have a growing audience and stable financial base. This is largely due to the support of our donors, members, volunteers and patrons. If you are one, we thank you!

So, if this is your first visit to our site or you are a frequent visitor, we hope that it provides you the information you need to make your visit to one or many of our performances an enjoyable one.

Thanks again for visiting and we look forward to seeing you at the theater!
