If you are exploring a new discipline or skill, early in your theatre career, or a recent arrival to the Washington, D.C. area, our mentorship program was developed with you in mind. We will carefully match you with a mentor who shares interests with you, and can remember what it felt like to be where you are now. Through this program, Theatre Washington strives to build community between individuals – if this just feels like “networking”, we’re doing it wrong! The mentee-mentor relationship is meant to be authentic, informed and guided by our collective work and connections as a community.
Our next program will run from April 5, 2021 to July 26, 2021 and is now closed for applications.
If you are interested in becoming a mentor or mentee in a future program, please look through the program expectations.

Theatre Work Database
When the full Theatre Washington website launches, the Theatre Work database will be a robust, profile-driven network to connect talented theatre-makers with available work. We hope this will increase access to opportunity, promote equitable compensation, and drive industry and artist recovery after an unprecedented period of shutdown.
If you are a Washington, DC-area theatre maker and you’d like to be included in the Theatre Work database, please let us know using this form. We will be in touch when it’s time to complete your profile.
