Back to National Theatre home
of the National Theatre can be arranged when there is no mainstage production.
The minimum number of participants is 10, and the maximum is 60.
Tours are available only during the week between 11 am and

are required. Call John Loomis at (202) 783-6854 for tour information
The tour includes the history of the National
and a discussion of the technical aspects of putting on a show.
A Q&A period is included if time allows. It is generally
possible to go backstage and onto the stage itself.
Most tours are conducted by volunteer tour guides and individuals
with some background in theatre, who are available during the day,
and who might like to conduct tours, can send a letter of application to the National Theatre describing their experience and interest.
