Hailed as witty and wildly romantic and with a beautiful, lush score by Stephen Sondheim, A Little Night Music explores the tangled web of affairs of several upper middle-class couples in Sweden at the turn of the century.  Set in a weekend country house on the longest night of the year, old passions are rekindled, surprising liaisons develop and love’s endless possibilities are discovered during an evening of romantic musical chairs. Featuring the classic song “Send in the Clowns,” A Little Night Music is a story of love, nostalgia, regret and the magic of music on a summer’s night.

COVID-19 COMPLIANCE

Reston Community Players is committed to the health and safety of RCP volunteers, the Reston Community Center, and their combined patrons and audiences.

It is our goal to maintain the highest standards of health and safety to mitigate chances of exposure to COVID-19 while rehearsing and performing in person.  As such, RCP IS REQUIRING EVERY PARTICIPANT IN OUR IN-PERSON ACTIVITIES TO SHOW PROOF OF VACCINATION AGAINST COVID-19.  In addition, all volunteers and participants are required to wear masks inside our facility at all times.

In addition to increasing policies of safety, it is equally important to make sure cast, crew, and patrons feel safe while working on and experiencing live entertainment. It is recognized and understood that there is an inherent level of risk to the performance and attendance of in person events, but it is important that we work together to limit exposure and chances of infection.

Auditionees acknowledge the inherent risk of rehearsing and performing in-person at this time. As such we will and expect all cast and crew to carry a mutual respect for each other and the company. COVID protocols are in place, and will be followed by all parties.
