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.
Our proceeds currently go toward supporting our youth & young adult ministries, and also toward supporting the theatrical renovations to our performing arts center. But in earlier years, our shows supported AAA Women for Choice Pro-Life Center, Birthright, Medical Missionaries, Gabriel Homes, Don Bosco Center and Youth Apostles.
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 BroadwayWorld 2018 DC-Region Awards in the community theatre category for having the Best Production of 2018 as well as the Best Actress and Best Actor in the entire DC area.
Benefits of Being Involved in Our Theatre Ministry
- Our theatre ministry provides a hook to involve teens and young adults who otherwise might not be involved in the parish
- Our theatre ministry engages young people in the parish for a more intense experience in order to accomplish a common goal
- Teens and young adults provide a service to our larger community who witness the production, and by using the proceeds for charity work, they serve even more
