Announcing Season 75!

Dominion Stage is thrilled to announce our 75th Season!
Four shows - two venues

‍THE CRUCIBLE
by Arthur Miller
August 9 - 24, 2024
T‍heatre on the Run, 3700 S Four Mile Run Drive, Arlington, VA 22206

Widely considered a masterpiece, this timeless classic challenges American ideas of power, intolerance, and justice. In the Puritan community of Salem, Massachusetts, a servant girl accuses a farmer’s wife of witchcraft. One accusation spirals into many, uncovering a web of bigotry and deceit that changes their lives forever. Among the most produced plays since its 1953 debut, THE CRUCIBLE is both a gripping historical drama and an evergreen parable of contemporary society.

‍FUN HOME
Music by Jeanine Tesori, Book and Lyrics by Lisa Kron
Based on the graphic novel by Alison Bechdel
October 25 - November 9, 2024
Gunston Theatre Two, 2700 S Lang Street, Arlington,  VA 22206

‍When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Moving between past and present, Alison relives her unique childhood playing at the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality, and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires. Fun Home is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.

‍THE CITY OF CONVERSATION
‍by Anthony Giardina
January 31 - February 15, 2025
Theatre on the Run, 3700 S Four Mile Run Drive, Arlington, VA 22206

In 1979, Washington D.C. was a place where people actually talked to each other...where adversaries fought it out on the Senate floor and then smoothed it out over drinks and hors d'oeuvres. But it was all about to change. In this play spanning 30 years and six presidential administrations, Hester Ferris throws Georgetown dinner parties that can change the course of Washington’s politics. But when her beloved son suddenly turns up with an ambitious Reaganite girlfriend and a shocking new conservative world view, Hester must choose between preserving her family and defending the causes she's spent her whole life fighting for.

‍XANADU
‍Book by Douglas Carter Beane, Music and Lyrics by Jeff Lynne and John Farrar
June 13 - 28, 2025
Gunston Theatre Two, 2700 S Lang Street, Arlington, VA 22206

Xanadu follows the journey of a magical and beautiful Greek muse, Kira, who descends from the heavens of Mount Olympus to Venice Beach, California in 1980 on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time – the first ROLLER DISCO! (Hey, it's 1980!) But, when Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation, and chaos abounds.

Who We Are


Since a group of neighbors formed a play-reading group in 1949, Dominion Stage has been a part of the Arlington community.  We are Arlington's oldest community theatre.  We seek stories that reflect everyone in our community, especially those not usually highlighted.  To us, "Anything But Predictable" means you'll see stories about the good, the bad, the ugly, and even the undead.  We've explored incest, suicide, drug abuse, mental illness, sexuality, prejudice, puppet sex, crime, and life in a trailer park, on a desert isle, in a locker room, and at a boarding school.  Sometimes we're not the best choice for grandma or the kids, and we'll let you know.  We ARE the best choice for theatre that makes you think, helps you understand, makes you laugh (frequently), makes you cry (sometimes), and celebrates the community we are all a part of.

Come find us

GUNSTON THEATRE TWO,
2700 S Lang Street, Arlington, VA:
Dominion Stage's current black-box home (the original library of Gunston Middle School) gives us space to present musicals with large casts and sets, as well as the intimacy necessary for more dramatic pieces and comedies.  Seating configuration changes with each production, and audience members are rarely more than a few steps from the actors. There is plentiful free parking.  Patrons enter via the main glass doors, pass Theatre One on the left, and follow the signs down the hall to Theatre Two, or may drive around the building to park closer to Theatre Two's entrance (look for the neon art).  The closest Metro (though not walkable) is Pentagon City.

THEATRE ON THE RUN,
3700 S Four Mile Run Drive, Arlington, VA:
For more intimate shows, Dominion Stage will use the smaller black box theatre located in the Arlington Cultural Affairs building. Seating for fewer than 100 patrons, less than 10 feet from the action!
