6:30 PM - Pre-show drinks at Studio Theatre
8:00 PM - Wig Out! in Studio's transformed Stage 4
10:00 PM - Pool Party at the Penthouse Pool Club (VIDA U Street)

Spend your Summer Friday with Studio’s young professionals group, Friends With Benefits, at the Summer Fling—our favorite party of the season. We're kicking this year's Summer Fling off with a pre-show happy hour at Studio and a performance of Wig Out! written by Academy Award-winner Tarell Alvin McCraney (Moonlight).  Then we're partying all night long with the cast of Wig Out! at VIDA Penthouse Pool Club.

Don't miss your chance to celebrate Studio's latest work and score booze, light hors d'oeuvres, and access to the rooftop pool. 


All Friends With Benefits members get two free tickets (or more for higher bases) to the Summer Fling including a pre-show cocktail hour at Studio, performance of Wig Out!, and post-show party at VIDA Penthouse Pool Club. Non-members are welcome to meet us at the after party for booze, light hors d'oeuvres, and access to the rooftop pool for $20.


Great relationships come with great privilege and there's still time to join or renew. Decide if you're ready to go steady and make $10 monthly installments, or if you’d rather go all in and pay the $120 membership fee up front. Either way, simply click "Buy Tickets" on this page and select the membership option that works for you.

Looking for a little more? First base membership starts at $10 a month, but if you're looking for more benefits and closer access to Studio Theatre, check out our range of membership levels. It's easy to find an option that fits your life. To join at another level, simply select "Friends With Benefits" as your gift designation on Studio's Donate Now page. We'll email you to confirm your tickets to the Fling.
