The Theatre Lab School of the Dramatic Arts is Washington, D.C.’s largest and most comprehensive independent, nonprofit school for the dramatic arts.
Through its courses, camps, and programs, the Theatre Lab enrolls more than 2,800 kids, teens, and adults a year. Offerings target beginners and veteran actors alike through a wide range of classes designed to fit busy schedules — summer camps for kids, Saturday acting classes, acting or playwriting classes for rookies, public speaking for non-theater professionals, and more. For those 18 and older preparing for a theater career, the intensive, year-long Honors Acting Conservatory is the closest thing to graduate-level training students can get without having to quit a job to attend school full-time. Distinguished faculty comprises top-notch, working theater artists who perform, write, or direct theatre around town.
The Theatre Lab is in partnership with the Washington Stage Guild.
