Synetic Theater is widely known for its artistry and innovation and has been serving the Washington, DC community since 2001. With the wide reach of education programs, our impact is even greater. We have received 92 Helen Hayes Award nominations and 23 Helen Hayes Awards for artistic work, including unprecedented 15 nominations for a single production (King Lear). Unlike traditional theaters with 3 weeks of rehearsals to produce the show, Synetic’s rehearsal period is often 2 to 3 months long to achieve the intricate physical theater work. Synetic artists train and work hard over long months to create the one-of-a-kind experience you’ve come to expect from us.

Our work would not be possible without your support. Ticket sales cover less than 50% of the theatre expenses, the rest comes from the generosity of supporters like you.

Please send a gift to Synetic Theater today to ensure artistry and innovation in Washington D.C. theatre is alive.
