Providence Players Kick Off Season with ‘Calendar Girls’

The Providence Players are set to kick off their 18th season with their production of Tim Firth’s “Calendar Girls,” which opens on Friday, Oct. 2 at 7:30 p.m. at the James Lee Community Center, located at 2855 Annandale Road, Falls Church.

Opening in the same week that the McLean Community Players close their production of “Calendar Girls,” the Providence Players’ version of the play will run through October 17. Michael Donahue will direct the Providence Players’ production of Firth’s award-winning film, which was later adapted into a play.

There will be ten performances of the show, including two matinees and two Thursday evening performances. Tickets for the show cost between $17 – $20 and can be purchased online at or at the door.

Other shows that will be featured in the Providence Players’ 2015-16 season are “Snow White and the Family Dwarf,” “Almost, Maine,” and “Red Herring.” Season tickets cost between $17 – $57. For more information, visit
