Dramathon - New Works, DC Theatre Stars and Scholarships






Join us on Monday, June 10 at 7:30pm at Washington Stage Guild (900 Massachusetts Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20001). You'll see some of DC's most acclaimed actors, directors, Theatre Lab students, and alums reading world premieres of short plays written just for that night. It's fast-paced, fun, and unlike any other event in town! 

Actors perform in 2018 Dramathon

>> SIGN UP TO PARTICIPATE!  Act in brand new plays alongside Washington's most acclaimed actors!

Perform in staged readings of new 10-minute plays by award-winning local playwrights. You’ll rehearse and perform with area directors, actors, and artists in a one-of-a-kind experience, all the while raising money for a great cause. It's like a walk-a-thon, but instead of walking for miles, you'll be walking the boards to support youth scholarship programs!  The more money you raise, the more (and bigger) roles you get!  And the fundraising is easy.  We'll set you up with a webpage and everything else you need.

>> Buy tickets to see the show!

2019 Guest Actors Include: Mitchell Hébert, Felicia Curry, Rick Hammerly, JJ Johnson, Michael Kramer, Jennifer Mendenhall, Michael Russotto, and Carlos Saldaña - in readings of short plays by Randy Baker, Renee Calarco, Tearrance Chisholm, Allyson Currin, Kathryn O’Sullivan, Elizabeth Pringle, MaryHall Surface, and Karen Zacarías. Christopher Henley, Dorothy Neuman, and José Carrasquillo will join us to direct the new works. You can help Dramathon performers get bigger roles by donating on their page below, or support the whole event by buying a ticket to see the show. 

Donate to a Dramathon Performer
Dramathon performers will raise funds to earn roles in the performance. The more a performer raises, the bigger the part they'll get. Donate by May 24 to the actors you'd like to see perform on June 10.
