Community Outreach

Fundraising Efforts

Keegan is an active part of a larger community — not just our literal neighborhood of Dupont Circle and beyond, but the community of the world.  Since our founding, Keegan has supported a number of organizations and causes, both through dedicated fundraising performances and through direct contribution, including:

Washington Hospital Center
Doctors Without Borders
Whitman Walker Clinic
The Cherry Fund
Haiti Education Fund
American Diabetes Association

Community Activities

Keegan is an enthusiastic participant in neighborhood and community activities, including:

The 17th Street Festival
Dupont Circle Festival
Dupont Main Street
The Dupont Circle House Tour/Dupont Circle Citizens Association

To encourage relationship-building within the local community, Keegan Theatre offers discount ticketing to community groups as well as organizations such as the USO.

Mt Olivet United Methodist Church: Mt Olivet Players

The Mount Olivet Players produce a show each season that is directed and designed by Keegan company members. The money raised by the production is put toward the youth group’s annual mission trips – in 2012, the Mt. Olivet Players’ production of Picasso at the Lapin Agileraised more than $10,000 for youth outreach programming. Over the years, the young people involved in these productions have given us precious feedback about how these programs have shaped their lives – in developing a love for the arts and a spirit of service to others.

Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington: Chalice Theatre

Chalice Theatre was founded in 1997 by Keegan Artistic Director Mark A. Rhea, Donald E. Wright (then Keegan Executive Director), and Trudi Olivetti for the purpose of putting on intergenerational plays, whereby youth and adults work side-by-side with members of a professional theatre company to produce a Broadway-style musical every year that is suitable for families to attend and serves as a learning experience as well as a way to raise money for worthy charitable causes.
