  • Capitol Hill Arts Workshop
    At Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, students can learn to throw a pot. But no clay will be harmed during the process, as "throwing a pot" in ceramics terms means making a pot on a ceramics wheel. And the arts center has plenty of wheels to practice with. For the center's students, who range from pre-K kids to adults, opportunities to try other disciplines abound, too. Since 1972, the teachers have been sharing passions that range from dance and visual arts to music and photography. They encourage students to expand their creative horizons in classes that cover such topics as theater, graffiti art, creative writing, and ballet. They even teach students to develop photos in the center's darkroom, which is 100% free of monsters and boogeymen. Capitol Hill Arts Workshop also offers tuition assistance and payment plans if necessary.

  • DAR Constitution Hall
    The young Italian tenor trio Il Volo impresses audiences with pitch-leaping vocal performances rich in three-part harmonies. Performing renditions of classic Italian songs as well as material penned by contemporary songwriters, the teenage opera singers showcase budding international appeal and the promise of a bright future that consists of crooning crowds and autographing customs slips at airports. Opening act Ethan Bortnick, a 10-year-old piano prodigy known as the youngest entertainer to headline his own concert tour and attempt to purchase a monster truck, starts out the night with original piano compositions as well as recognizable classics.

  • Constellation Theatre Company
    Constellation Theatre Company immerses audiences in ensemble-driven plays that explore vast expanses of human emotion and experience. Written by famed Spanish dramatist Federico Garc?a Lorca, Blood Wedding weaves a dark tale of romantic longing, betrayal, and murder, all set around a rural wedding. The play seesaws between psychological realism and dreamlike sequences starring the moon, her priestess, and death incarnate, which elevate the show's meditations on violence to haunting allegory while conspicuously snubbing other A-list celestial bodies. Song-and-dance sequences set to live music further draw showgoers into the onstage action. Constellation Theatre Company's black-box theater fosters an intimacy that breaks down emotional fourth walls and social prohibitions against holding a stranger's hand during the scary parts.
