Happenings Happy Hours

Happenings Happy Hours brings an exciting series of free performances.

Come directly from work, get a drink at the Forum bar and transition into the evening with a unique mix of performances.

Happenings performances bring local artists into conversation with the play’s on STC’s stages. Over the course of the season, you can see a range of performances that connect overtly or subtly with the themes, authors and words of the season. Every Happenings event features a different type of locally grown performance. With musicians, dancers, actors, puppeteers and genre-mixers you are sure to leave feeling inspired and excited.

The performances will all be held on Thursday evenings from 6 – 7 p.m. in the Forum of Sidney Harman Hall at 610 F St. NW, Washington, D.C.

All performances are FREE and reservations are not required. Happy Hours will end with enough time for you to get dinner and return to see that evening’s production at STC.
