Studio 1 is a performing arts center with an intimate 100-seat black box theatre located in Holly Hill Mall in Burlington, North Carolina. We are a dynamic community theatre group that focuses on providing unique programming in a positive atmosphere with professional results. We provide opportunities to performers of all ages, interests, experience levels and we offer training through classes and outreach.
Studio 1 is a community that understands the unique growth that occurs when we come together to do something bigger than ourselves. We build this community through compassionate inclusion, a spirit of empowerment, and the preservation of a theatre environment that celebrates the best in people.
Studio 1 strives to build and inspire citizens of tomorrow through visceral performances, thought-provoking content, an immersive theatre experience, and transformative, performing arts education.
Unique: Theatre has always been a place to make us think differently, laugh bigger, and challenge the status quo. We want to bring new and fresh content to our community while honoring and learning from the legendary.
Positive: Community is maintained with a culture of seeing the best in all of us. We strive to create an environment that is built on encouragement, inclusion, and acceptance.
Empowering: Through the performing arts, we grow and stretch our own abilities. Taking risks in the classroom and on stage makes us better people. Through mentorship and collaboration, we give our community permission to take those risks.
