A Celebration of Local D.C. Theater

Opening the Source Theatre Archives

"It was the Source Theater ... that offered a place to start.  ... When I'm asked about the Source Theater Company, I share fond memories of working with Pat, Keith Parker (Source Theater Festival) and other artists in the nation's capital, where my career in theater began."
-- Actor Clayton LeBouef

The Source Theatre is an institution in the D.C. theater scene. It's where many young and hungry actors, playwrights and directors got their start; it's where artists felt comfortable pushing boundaries, and it's where D.C. audiences could laugh, love and cry.

Because of this, we are proud to present the opening of the Source Theatre archives in DC Public Library's Washingtoniana.  The archives include artists' biographical information, resumes from artists and staff, audiotapes, contracts, correspondence, financial records, photographs, Playbills and programs, production scripts, stage/set designs, videotapes and more.

For the opening of the collection, we are hosting a celebration in Washingtoniana at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library on Monday, Oct. 15 at 7 p.m. Join us for an evening of memories, photos and outrageous stories of the almost 30-year history of the theater.
