Undercroft Theatre
900 Massachusetts Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20001


All performances are at The Undercroft Theatre which is in the ground (street) level of the Mount Vernon Place United Methodist Church: 900 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC.

The Undercroft Theatre is located in the heart of downtown Washington D.C. on the corner of Massachusetts Avenue and 9th Street (NW) and is just steps from the New Convention Center, and blocks from the National Mall, the Smithsonian, the Verizon Center, and Chinatown.

The church sits at the point formed by the intersections of 9th Street, NW, Massachusetts Avenue, NW. and K St. NW.  One may enter from either of the street level side entrances on Massachusetts or K Street, NW, under the front of the church. Frankly, we are hard to miss!

Parking Tips for Washington Stage Guild Patrons

  • Free street parking: Massachusetts Ave, NW south side – from theatre’s location at 9thSt to 14th St, weekday evenings (after 6:30 PM), all day Saturdays and Sundays (except 900 block of Mass Sunday afternoons); NOTE – NO parking from church’s circular driveway to the corner of 9th and Mass; Numbered and lettered streets north of Mass Ave and west of 9th St, NW – evenings and Sunday afternoons, , one side zoned for two hour parking until 8:30 PM weekdays and Saturdays, NOTE – other side of most streets designated for resident parking only. Always read the signs carefully, to make sure you are parking in a legal spot.
  • Metered street parking: K Street, NW between 9th and 12th St, NW, metered paid parking unlimited from 6:30 pm to 10:00 pm weekdays/Saturdays. Pay with credit card, cash, or ParkMobileapp, NOTE – two hour limit Saturday afternoons, no parking in marked restaurant valet areas.

    Find other paid parking in a garage or lot through Parking Panda, ParkWhiz, or Spot Hero to locate and pre-pay for a parking spot in advance. Several of the hotels near us also have indoor garages that usually have space evenings and weekends. (Some of those are valet park only.)

    NOTE: Big events/games at the Washington Convention Center or the Verizon Center make finding parking more challenging, so it’s a good idea to check their event calendars and allow extra time to park.
