PPF Gets Wonderful Mention in Dept. of Neighborhood and Community Services Region 2 Spring Newsletter

The front page of the Region 2 Neighborhood and Community Services April newsletter features a story on the James Lee Community Center Theatre and our new Theatre Manager, Dan Schrader.  In that article, NCS says this about PPF:

“…the Providence Players graciously sponsored the construction of a new marquee, located outside the Center’s theatre entrance off of Annandale Road. The marquee now advertises theatre performances and other significant events to a wide array of folks who travel Annandale Road on any given day. The Providence Players provide an entertaining and affordable quality theatre experience in the greater Fairfax community while providing an opportunity for Fairfax area residents to participate in all aspects of theatre production. We are so very fortunate to have them as a long-standing partner.”

Wonderful words from a wonderful partner. 2014 is our 10th year at the James Lee Community Center Theater!  We were blessed to be included in the original planning and design of theater space at James Lee, honored to be included in the renovation of this historic facility, and we are proud to be the resident community theater troupe at James Lee. We are thrilled with our partnership with the James Lee center staff and NCS and we look forward to a long and creative association with NCS and James Lee.

The Fairfax County Dept. of Neighborhood and Community Services is the county agency responsible for the management and programming of activities at James Lee…among many other things! One of NCS key missions is community building in a variety of ways. Theatre is just one of those ways and  as the article outlines, there are big plans brewing in this regard. And you know that PPF will be in the thick of it!

PPF would like to formally welcome Dan Schrader to the James Lee family. You will see in the newsletter piece that Dan is an extraordinary talent and deeply experienced. We are very fortunate to have Dan as the new Theatre Manager at James Lee and he has already proven to be an invaluable resource. More than talented and experienced, Dan is a wonderful guy and it seems that he is a good fit for James Lee and vice versa.
