Natural Theatricals is a professional theater company dedicated to imaginative staging of classical, contemporary, and original works for audiences in the greater Washington, DC region. In addition to fully-staged plays, we have begun to present musicals and programs of storytelling and song.
Natural Theatricals has mainly presented plays with classical themes derived from the ancient Greek theatrical tradition. These may include English translations of ancient works, adaptations by modern masters, or new works built upon or inspired by classical themes. We broadened this tradition in 2007 to present our first musical, Will You Know It's Me?, and in 2008 when we started presenting programs of theatrical storytelling, including pieces with musical accompaniment and songs, at a variety of venues.
We strive to present productions that challenge the imagination of our audiences, respect our source material, and maintain high standards of taste. In general, we believe the performances we present are suitable for persons thirteen years of age and older. Our next production, The Prince Who Hopped a Bus, is suitable for persons 8 to 88.
