Traveling Players Ensemble was founded in 2003 by Producing Artistic Director Jeanne E. Harrison as a 501(c)(3) professional theatre company based in Great Falls, Virginia.  Geared toward teenagers, the mission of Traveling Players is to enhance problem-solving skills, self-reliance, self-expression, and a heightened appreciation of both challenges and beauty by bringing great theatre into the great outdoors.  Our mission reflects the earliest origins of theatre, when traveling minstrels and theatre troupes roamed the ancient and medieval countryside, relying on the barest props and the boldest imagination to convey their art.  During our four- to six-week summer sessions, participants camp out, rehearse, and perform outdoors in beautiful and historic places, like the Shenandoah National Park and Colonial Williamsburg, cultivating stronger, more adaptable and more capable artists and individuals.
