Traveling Players Ensemble - Great Theatre in the Great Outdoors

Become a Corporate Sponsor

Corporate_SponsorshipsSelected as a “Summer School in the Arts” by the NEA, Traveling Players Ensemble is a not-for-profit 501c(3) professional theatre company in the Washington, DC area, dedicated to bringing great theatre into the great outdoors through a thriving summer camp and year-round acting classes and workshops. Our summer camp provides intensive, classical theatre training to small troupes of teen and pre-teen actors who are carefully guided by professional theatre artists to perform in outdoor settings.

Sponsorship provides the opportunity for a company to support the arts while getting exposure to our teenage campers, their families and friends. We offer several levels of sponsorship at different price points to fit any budget.
