National Players

The Great Gatsby chronicles a time where success is expected and excess celebrated.  Here, Jay Gatsby is a god among men, yet without the love of Mrs. Daisy Buchanan, he is unfulfilled.  This fast-paced adaptation of Fitzgerald’s novel brings the Jazz Age of New York to life as Daisy’s cousin Nick guides us through a world where love, opportunity, deception, and tragedy are always just around the corner.

National Players is the touring program of Olney Theatre Center (OTC), an Equity theatre located just north of Washington, DC.  Following three months of rehearsals, the ten-member Players ensemble will open each production at OTC before embarking on its annual tour from September 2017 thru May 2018.  Continuing the legacy as America’s longest-running touring theatre company, National Players travels over 20 thousand miles each year to all corners of the country presenting live productions and theatre education to communities of all sizes and backgrounds. National Players has performed for nearly 3 million audience members in 43 states.

National Players is the touring program of Olney Theatre Center, a 501c3 not-for- profit and receives support from the Maryland State Arts Council, the Maryland State Department of Education, and the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County.
