WORK WITH POINTLESS

Pointless Theatre has been producing original puppet theatre spectacles for Washington, DC audiences since 2010. Recipient of the Helen Hayes Awards’ John Aniello Award for Outstanding Emerging Theatre Company, Pointless Theatre has grown from an ensemble of “unabashed weirdos” into a 501c3 organization with three productions per year, an annual operating budget of over $150,000, an eight-member board of governors, and a twelve-person volunteer staff. Pointless is looking to add a full-time staff position to work with the volunteer staff and board of governors to strategically grow the organization.

Our Mission: Pointless Theatre is dedicated to creating bold, visceral, and affordable spectacles that gleefully smash the traditional boundaries between puppetry, theatre, dance, music, and the visual arts. Through our work we excite a passion for adventurous art in the nation's capital and nurture a diverse, active, and inspired audience.
