About Us:

Edison is home to the professional presenting series Ovations and ovations for young people, showcasing touring artists and companies both national and international in scope.

Edison Theatre is the only fully technically equipped, proscenium thrust theater at Washington University in St. Louis and plays a varied role on campus.

Edison serves as a teaching facility for the Washington University Performing Arts Department, which produces three mainstage Edison shows each year and serves as a performance venue for Washington University student organizations.

Edison is also one of the few theaters in the St. Louis area to serve as a rental house for locally based presenting arts organizations. At its capacity, Edison Theatre seats 656.

Officially named Samuel B. & Charles B. Edison Theatre, but known affectionately as "the Edison," the theater's construction was made possible through a generous donation from Mrs. Samuel B. Edison in 1972 and is named after her late husband and son.
