MadLab Theatre is a non-profit organization that provides an artistic haven for the creation and experience of original works. It is a laboratory where individuals and ensembles are free to experiment without censor. Each year we produce seven to eight full-length original productions including “Theatre Roulette,” the longest-running annual shorts festival in Columbus. In addition, MadLab serves emerging artists by providing an affordable, quality venue to small arts organizations.
MadLab has been called a "troupe with ambition and taboo-shattering imagination" (The Columbus Dispatch). Our work has been cited for an "amazing display of theatrical creativity" (The Other Paper) and has been nominated four times for the Greater Columbus Arts Council's Artistic Excellence award. And now we’re closer to downtown than ever.
With the purchase of our facility at 227 North 3rd street, we’ve solidified our position as an affordable and accessible venue for the most exciting and daring artists Central Ohio has to offer. Join the experiment and become a member today!
