RCP’s 47th Season will be
Find your leg-warmers, grab your roller skates and head over to the Reston Community Center! We’ll take you back to the 80’s as you follow the journey of a magical and beautiful Greek muse, Kira, who descends from the heavens. She is on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time – the first ROLLER DISCO! (Hey, it’s 1980!) But, when Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal boy, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation and chaos abounds! This hilarious (tongue-in-cheek) musical adventure based on the Olivia Newton-John/Gene Kelly movie, rolls along with the original hit score including Evil Woman, Have You Ever Been Mellow, and Strange Magic – Xanadu will be in your head and heart forever!

RCP concludes the season in April with Neil Simon’s Chapter 2. Prolific playwright, Neil Simon, brings his semi-biographical comedy to the stage. George, a recent widower is having a hard time handling the dating game. After being set up on a series of wildly unsuccessful blind dates, his younger brother, Leo, introduces him to a “keeper” . . . but Jennie has her own hesitation about dipping her toes into the dating pool again. It’s a bumpy (hilarious!) road but George and Jennie find happiness the second time around. Whimsical, snappy dialogue … a Simon trademark . . . is mixed with real-life emotions that will leave you smiling as you leave the theatre.
Directed by Adam Konowe
Produced by Bea and Jerry Morse
