Did you know? Less than 36 hours after our final performance, our entire set, lighting, sound, seating, costumes, orchestra, lobby, and more...vanishes? It's called "strike" and it's when our entire cast, crew, and orchestra removes everything we brought together to create the one-of-a-kind amazing show you experienced. Then our space becomes a blank canvas for the next magical event. 🎭

To see how different our theater looks after we finish striking everything, check out this cool picture of the West Side Story actors who played Tony & Maria giving our stage one final farewell for the summer...

With a show as iconic as West Side Story, it's important to us that we bring an authentic West Side Story world to life on stage for you. 🇵🇷 🇺🇸 That's why we had many Puerto Rican natives involved in the process. And because we're pulling out all the stops, we even brought in Victor Cruz, the same dialect coach Stephen Spielberg used for his highly-acclaimed movie remake of West Side Story!

In addition to coaching the award-winning movie cast, Victor has also performed on TV & film in everything from HBO's The Sopranos, to Annie, Blue Bloods, Law & Order, 30 Rock, Spielberg's West Side Story, and in Netflix's The Good Cop. Plus being Puerto Rican and from New York himself, he brought many valuable insights in addition to his important dialect coaching.

Our Story

Founded in 2002, Upper Room Theatre is an award-winning, non-profit program that uses high caliber performing arts to inspire and uplift our audience, ensemble, and production team with a Christian spirit. We produce a large-scale musical every July (seen by over 3,500 people!) and an annual Winter Cabaret the first weekend of February.

Upper Room is a theatre with an impact far beyond our walls. Not only do we strive to create moving, professional-level theatrical experiences for you and your loved ones, but all of our proceeds go to supporting our youth and young adult programs across the entire year.

Beyond having several heartwarming hours at the theater, know that when you see one of our shows, buy something at our concessions, or make a donation, you're helping us make a big impact in our community, on our local missions, and even as teens go abroad to serve. So in addition to enjoying amazing entertainment and laughs, you should feel great knowing you’re making a tremendous impact for countless others!

Most recently, we were recognized with a BroadwayWorld 2019 Award in the community theatre category for having the Best Production of 2019 in the entire DC area. We also received 7 Best Actor and Actress nominations.
