Our corporate partners demonstrate a commitment to civic leadership and community pride through general support and artistic and program sponsorships. The generosity of Washington, DC’s corporate community ensures that Studio remains a fixture of the city’s world-class cultural landscape. With every opportunity, corporate partners are recognized through exposure, exclusivity, entertainment, and engagement while supporting outstanding theatre experiences for DC’s diverse audiences.
Corporate sponsors partner with Studio Theatre to help promote vibrancy, vitality, and cultural discourse within our community by lending their support to:
General gifts to Studio’s annual fund help support free or deeply discounted tickets, partnerships with cultural and social service institutions, post-show discussions and other public events, as well as accessible performances to support and welcome audiences of different needs.
Every year, Studio produces a season of mainstage productions, reaching over 65,000 people. The repertoire includes new and contemporary writing, as well as particularly intimate or immersive staging.
Since 2011, Studio has commissioned 20 artists and premiered 14 new plays. In 2019, we launched Work in Process, a public reading series of plays currently under commission.
Studio partners with DC Public Schools to welcome over 400 DC public high school students for free performances each season, and through our Internship and Apprenticeship programs, we train students and early-career professionals to thrive in the areas of production and arts management.
Studio holds an annual fundraising event, bringing together members of the community for a shared experience around good food, artistic engagement, and community connection. All proceeds support everything Studio does to present, advance, and promote exemplary contemporary theatre in the nation’s capital.
