Located in Montgomery County (12 miles from Washington, DC; 35 miles from Baltimore), the Olney Theatre is a nonprofit professional theater producing an eight-show season. Renovated in 1993, Olney Theatre then extended to a year-round season. Some 118,000 patrons attend the theater annually.

At the Olney, performances in the 2016-2017 season emphasize 20th-century American classics, new works, area premieres, reinterpretations of classics, and musical theater. On July 25, 2015, the Olney hosted the OTC Fest, a free event for families.

Opened in 1941, the 450-seat Olney Theatre hosts several community projects. These include the free Summer Shakespeare Festival presented by the National Players, a classical touring group of young actors, as well as student matinees, apprenticeships, and workshops.
