The Hub Theatre endeavors to produce work that highlights our common humanity, providing a theatrical experience that is at once challenging and inclusive. We strive to be the physical center
of a dynamic circle of story, art, and community, to create the transcendent exchange unique to live theatre.
The Hub Theatre was founded by Helen Pafumi, Maggie Ulmer and Marey Oakes in March of 2008. We were incorporated in the state of Virginia on Aug 8th 2008, and subsequently filed for our 501c3 non-profit status, which was approved in May of 2009. Our first family show was performed in the open air on Lake Anne Plaza to sold out houses. Soon afterwards The Hub staged its inaugural production at 1st Stage’s space in Tyson’s Corner. We then continued our nomadic existence performing at ArtSpace Falls Church and The Soundry in Vienna. Soon after, The Hub became the resident theatre company at The New School of Northern Virginia’s John Swayze Theatre where we currently perform. Throughout our inception and trekking through Fairfax to find a home, The Hub staff has always stayed committed to the circle of story, art and community.
