About Open Circle Theatre

“He drew a circle to shut us out
Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout;
But love and I had the wit to win,
We drew a Circle that took him in.”
Edwin Markham


Open Circle Theatre (O C T) is Washington DC’s first professional theatre dedicated to producing professional productions that integrate the considerable talents of artists with disabilities. O C T was formed by a group of people with and without disabilities, who possess professional theater experience, love of the theater, and a commitment to full access for all persons in every opportunity our community has to offer.

Upcoming Production

Coming in October 2016:

Released in 1969, Tommy was one of the most famous concept albums of the tumultuous 70’s. The stirring and plaintive melodies of the main character –alongside the disturbing and dissonant themes of murder and abuse, healing and messianic delusions, disillusionment and hope–have secured its place in the rock canon as a rock opera.
