About Round House Theatre
"Round House started in 1970 as “Street ’70,” a program of the Montgomery County Department of Recreation that provided educational outreach in the schools and performances throughout the county. In 1977, Montgomery County offered Street ’70 a permanent home in what used to be the Bushey Drive Elementary School in Silver Spring. The building was round, so the company changed its name to Round House Theatre. In 1982, Round House incorporated as a nonprofit and continued to remain part of the County’s Department of Recreation until 1993, when it became a separate and independent professional theater. Since that time, Round House Theatre has sought to build one of the nation’s leading artistic ensembles by establishing long-term relationships with exceptional artists, and integrates comprehensive theater education for patrons of all ages into every aspect of their work."
