Theater Lovers' Group—Fairfax and Reston
Generally fourth Wednesdays
Sept. 23, Oct. 28, 4-5:30
Coordinator: Norma Jean Reck email@example.com
The Theater Lovers' Group (TLG) welcomes all OLLI members to join us in our theater adventures and making new theater friends. The following activities are those that TLG did before our current coronavirus pandemic restrictions closed theaters, and what we will pursue post-COVID-19 to the extent possible. As we shelter-in-place and observe the social distancing requirements, TLG has discovered through the magic of technology that the world is our oyster. We can now watch shows from our own couch, at our own convenience, often for free, from anywhere in the world. TLG meetings are held monthly when OLLI is in session, where we plan theater outings, enjoy guest speakers, and share what’s going on in the theater world. We attend plays year round—usually matinees—at a variety of theater venues around town, followed by an optional dinner at a nearby restaurant. We periodically take one-day, as well as overnight, theater trips to New York City and go to the Contemporary American Theater Festival in Shepherdstown, West Virginia. We travel to the American Shakespeare Centre Blackfriars Playhouse in Staunton, Virginia. We support Mason’s outstanding School of Theater program; we attend their productions and develop classes for all OLLI members that are built around their theater offerings. We attend activities such as play readings with a dramaturg, stage readings, and the many special programs offered by local theaters.
