Fairfax County Public School Ensembles
Arena Stage has partnered with Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) since 2008, to create Voices of Now plays with various middle schools. Students meet twice a week, after school, at their respective schools during the Winter/Spring and devise an original, autobiographical, ensemble-based play to perform at the annual Voices of Now Festival at Arena Stage.
In the 2022-2023 season we provided after-school programs for the following schools:
