The Anacostia Playhouse brings arts presentations, performances, exhibits and instruction to an underserved neighborhood, and provides a venue for local artists to create, perform, and display their work. Located in a place rich in history and great in promise, the Playhouse is uniquely positioned to serve the local community east of the river while it also introduces the neighborhood to members of other communities – and helps restore nighttime vigor to historic Anacostia and its economy. In addition to mounting three annual productions, it regularly partners with Theater Alliance (its resident company) and Restoration Stage (one of the only professional, producing, African American theater companies in the metro area) and hosts a range of performers, from jazz musicians to puppeteers. Between performances, local schools, youth programs, nonprofits, and others utilize the space to make art and come together … as a community.
