Washington Shakespeare Company

Founded in 1990, Washington Shakespeare Company (WSC) is a performing arts organization dedicated to producing primarily classic works, both time-tested and contemporary; emphasizing a provocative, bold, intimate approach; and training and showcasing the best emerging talent in the region, mentored by seasoned, professional theatre artists.

WSC's mission is expressed through its commitment to artistic excellence and collaboration, developing talent, and promoting educational and social outreach. Our current artistic season consists of four mainstage productions and several “off night” co-productions and/or partnership projects presented with other professional companies.

In August 2011, the Washington Shakespeare Company renamed itself WSC Avant Bard.
