About Keegan
History & Info

The Keegan Theatre is a professional theatre company located in Washington DC. The first show ever produced by The Keegan Theatre was Cat on a Hot Tin Roof at Church Street Theater in 1996. In 2009, the Church Street Theater became Keegan’s official home, making The Keegan Theatre the resident theatre company of Dupont Circle. In 2013, Keegan purchased the Church Street Theater, renamed it The Andrew Keegan Theatre, and launched the “In Good Company” Capital Campaign to modernize the historic building through a major renovation project, which was finished in 2015. The revitalized venue officially reopened to audiences with a new production of the play that originally put the company on the map — Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Today, Keegan dedicates itself to producing diverse, affordable plays and musicals of the highest quality for the benefit of more than 15,000 visitors annually in recent years.
