The Studio Theatre is dedicated to producing the best in contemporary theatre. Our restless, innovative spirit generates an uncommonly rich and diverse body of work, encompassing provocative new writing from around the world, unique special events, and inventive stagings of contemporary classics. Devoted above all to artistic excellence, The Studio Theatre strives to present audiences with extraordinary writing, sophisticated design, and stunning performance. Our commitment to connecting actors and audience is built into the very architecture of our building, where none of our four performance spaces seats more than 225 patrons. No theatre of comparable budget size operates such exclusively intimate spaces.
The Studio Theatre is also committed to nurturing future generations of theatre professionals. Toward this end, we offer rigorous theatre training for both adults and young people, provide year-long apprenticeships for early-career arts leaders, and involve emerging talent in the creation of our work.
We believe in accessibility and inclusion, and open our doors to students and audiences across the region through a wide variety of outreach programs. A premiere cultural organization in Washington DC, The Studio Theatre is proud to make a vital contribution to our neighborhood and city.
