Outdoor theater to spring to life in Reston Town Center

A new kind of outdoor theater is coming to fruition in Reston Town Center this spring.

As promised last year, the Herndon-based NextStop Theatre, Reston Community Center, and the Reston Town Center Association (RTCA) will debut a contemporary spin on William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at Reston Town Square Park.

With performances on April 29, 30, and May 1 at 7 p.m., the comedy will represent Reston’s first-ever Theatre in the Park event, kicking off a series of other theatrical shows.

The show will take place on a stage specifically designed for production. Events will be open to all. No rain dates are planned.

NextStop Theatre Producing Director Evan Hoffman said the theater company is excited to collaborate with RTCA and Reston Community Center.

“Together we are going to create a beautiful, magical, and incredibly unique experience that will remind everyone why community and great art go hand in hand,” Hoffman wrote in an email.

RCC Executive Director Leila Gordon says the series exhibits the power of collaboration.

“We believe that combining the talents of NextStop Theatre with the beauty of Reston Town Square Park is a perfect example of how that synergy can deliver another delightful arts appointment on our spring calendars,” she said.

RTCA has been eyeing this collaboration in pursuit of the arts for quite some time.

“To be able to deliver this with such strong partners in Reston Community Center and NextStop Theatre ensures this will be done right, will be world class, and will be a real thrill for the community,” the organization’s  executive Director Robert Goudie said.

Additional outdoor series planned at Reston Town Center this year include:

  • Thursdays with the Arts at Mason (Thursdays, 5-6 p.m., beginning May 26)
  • Family Fun Entertainment Series (Saturdays, 10:45 a.m. beginning June 18)
  • The new Darden and Friends jazz series (Thursdays, 5-6:15 p.m., beginning September 8)
  • Sunday Art in the Park with Shenandoah Conservatory (Sundays, 7- 8 p.m., beginning June 12, 2023).
