A Source Theatre Celebration

The Meeting playbillPlease join theater artists and friends for an evening of memories, photos and stories of the almost 30-year history of the Source Theatre Company as the Washingtoniana Division's D.C. Community Archives celebrates the opening of the Source Theater Company archival collection.  Founded in 1977, the Source Theater Company is one of the oldest small professional theaters in Washington, D.C.  It was also the first arts organization to be located on the 14th Street corridor, which sustained major damage during the 1968 riots after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination.

Clayton Lebouef (who played Wendell "Orlando" Blocker on the HBO hit series, The Wire) and other artists will reflect on their experiences starting at Source.  A "Community Collection Dialogue" will allow attendees to share thoughts on collection use, etc. and selected items will be displayed.

The collection opening will be held in the Washingtoniana Division (Room 307)  until 9 p.m. It is free and open to the public. 

For further information, please call (202) 727-2272.
