Join Our Board!

Theatre Washington has recently engaged in a process to evaluate its volunteer Board of Directors and committee structure and processes. We’ve made progress toward our goals to be more efficient, accessible, transparent, and reflect anti-racist and anti-oppressive practices. As part of this process, we are now opening applications for membership on the Theatre Washington Board of Directors publicly and with increased transparency. See our update for details.
