2020 Dramathon

Event Date

Friday, December 11, 2020

Join us on Friday, December 11 at 7:30pm online to 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! CLICK HERE TO RSVP and RESERVE YOUR SPOT IN THE AUDIENCE!

Want to perform and help fundraise for a great cause? SIGN UP!

Actors (and anyone with an adventurous spirit) are encouraged to sign up to perform in staged readings of new 10-minute plays by award-winning local playwrights. They’ll rehearse and perform with area directors, professional 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, they're performing to support The Theatre Lab!  The more money they raise, the more (and bigger) roles they'll get!  Select your favorite actors below from the dropdown menu to make a donation and help them meet their fundraising goals, or sign up to join them on screen.
