Capital Stage was formed out of a passionate belief that live theatre provides, as Oscar Wilde put it, “…the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.” Our productions explore the human condition in relation to society and celebrate the participatory process of theatre as equal parts story, performer and live audience. We do this through the creation and interpretation of critically acclaimed plays, as well as bold new works, that engage the mind and soul. We produce fully mounted plays with professional actors; perform lively staged readings; partner with other nonprofits in our community; offer educational and outreach programs; and seek diversity among our artists and our productions.
At Cap Stage we do more than entertain. We bring gutsy, thought-provoking plays to our community; casting the finest actors; and pursuing an artistic vision that explores the very core of what it means to be human. Our new 2215 J Street home, will keep our audiences close to the action with new heights of creativity. Nothing plush, just a comfortable, intimate theatre that puts the spotlight on the art.
