On April 13, 2019 at Dock5 in Union Market, Studio Theatre welcomed more than 250 guests to celebrate Studio at our 40th Anniversary Celebration. We were delighted to share this experience with our guests, featuring images and stories from Studio’s history as well as a bit of present-day revelry.

It was our pleasure to welcome co-hosts Liam Forde and Shannon Dorsey to the stage for an unconventional evening of thoughtful programming, memories, and mingling. We’d like to thank the DuFour CollaborativeOccasions Caterers, and Pixelme Studio photography for putting together a truly unforgettable event.

We were proud to honor JBG SMITH during the celebration, for their incredible support of our community-based initiatives as well as their commitment to and revitalization of the 14th Street Corridor—a place we’ve called home for 40 years. 

An anniversary is not only a reflection of the past, but an opportunity to look forward and imagine the place we want to become. Thank you to our sponsors, ticket buyers, and donors for honoring our 40 years, and for joining us for another four decades and beyond of provocative theatre.
