Studio Theatre's mission is to produce the best in contemporary theatre. Its restless, innovative spirit makes it a leader both in Washington, DC, and in the nation. Artist-founded and artist-driven, Studio Theatre demands the highest quality production values. In its four-theatre performance complex, Studio Theatre brings audiences provocative writing and unparalleled artistry in performance, directing and design. The Studio 2ndStage creates edgy and explosive productions that complement The Studio Theatre's season, and our Special Events series produces and presents one-of-a-kind performances that would not otherwise be seen in Washington. The Studio Theatre provides opportunities for developing theatre artists as year-long apprentices and in 2ndStage. The Studio Theatre Acting Conservatory offers rigorous professional theatre training in close partnership with the working artists at The Studio Theatre. The Studio Theatre is deeply invested in the community and in the eclectic vitality of its neighborhood.
