“At Theatre Lab I've become so much more outgoing and confident – not just on the stage but in everyday life.”
Student Evaluation


The Theatre Lab partners with various organizations in the D.C. area as part of its educational and outreach programming. These partnerships help to strengthen and support The Theatre Lab’s mission, and are one of the many ways The Theatre Lab gives back to the community. Visit our Membership page for more on how The Theatre Lab partners with other organizations in the Washington community.

Amazon Smile

If you ever use, it's easy to set it up so that a percentage of every purchase will be donated to The Theatre Lab through their "Amazon Smile" program. Just type in "Theatre Lab" when it asks for your charity, and a list of Theatre Labs will come up. Select the one that says Washington, DC (should be at the top of the list). Then just bookmark the site and go there whenever you would normally go to Amazon. Thanks for supporting Theatre Lab while you shop! 

Life Stories Partners

The Theatre Lab partners with many community organizations to teach people from marginalized populations how to create original dramatic works using their own life experiences.
