The Vagabond Players is happy to announce its historic 100th consecutive season for 2015-16. The centennial season is made up of revivals of past successful Vagabond productions. The Vagabonds first opened in 1916 as a part of the Little Theatre Movement that was sweeping the country at the time. Whereas most of those theatres eventually closed or went dark for several seasons, The Vagabonds has produced a season for 100 consecutive years earning it the title: America’s Oldest Continuously Operating Little Theatre.
The staff of DCMetroTheaterArts congratulates Vagabond Players on this momentous occasion, and we thank you for a millenium of great theater!
