Imagination Stage DC

More than 38 years of providing superior theatre arts programs to children – combined with our on-going commitment to educational best practices and serving the changing needs of today’s youth – has positioned Imagination Stage to expand our work in Washington, DC.

Imagination Stage has long understood how the arts play an important role in children's development of key skills, such as collaboration, communication, and creative problem-solving. Yet in our nation’s capital today, where the poverty rate for youth below the age of 18 is 26% – significantly higher than the national rate of 19% – finding the means to participate in arts education can be a challenge. Imagination Stage DC offers a solution.

In 2015, Imagination Stage DC incorporated as a separate 501(c)(3), reflecting our strengthened commitment to improving the lives of children in the District while building on the strength, stability, and expert knowledge of our staff and leadership to produce high-quality Theatre for Young Audiences and theatre education for DC.

Imagination Stage DC offers many of the same services administered at the Bethesda location, including arts education classes and workshops, in-school residencies, professional development workshops for teachers, Theatre for the Very Young, performances of Óyeme, the Beautifull, and Learning through Theatre.

We need your help to expand the DC initiative and continue to offer these programs to the low-income students of DC. Imagination Stage DC is dedicated to serving these students through superlative theatre arts experiences, engaging their creativity, inspiring their imagination, and empowering their voice.
