Friends of Hexagon
Friends of Hexagon (FoH) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit tax-exempt organization that provides a means for individuals and institutions to contribute to Hexagon. You can find our web site at www.friendsofhexagon.org.
Our Mission: Hexagon has found it necessary to pay a substantial part of its annual income to provide space for such essential and increasing production-related activities as auditions, writers meetings, rehearsals, storage, and set construction. Moreover, search for appropriate space has consumed an inordinate amount of time, since the same spaces are not available each year.
To reduce these costs and to ensure the availability of appropriate spaces, FoH was founded. The resulting reduction in annual expenses will permit Hexagon to donate more of its income to Washington area charities.
The ultimate goal of FoH is to provide Hexagon with a home base in a building large enough to support non-theater activities.
Become a Hexagon Member
There are many benefits to Hexagon membership. Perhaps the most important is becoming part of a tradition of using laughter, music, and creativity to improve the lives of others. For those drawn to the stage, Hexagon provides its members with the chance to sing, dance, and act in an original satirical musical revue whose sketches have entertained tens of thousands of people since 1956.
For those who don’t seek center stage, there are opportunities to learn and use technical theater skills, such as lighting, sound, and set design.
Members also serve as ushers, play in the orchestra, and staff the house and box office. Because each Hexagon revue is an original production, there are numerous opportunities to exercise your creativity–developing scripts, composing music, and writing lyrics.
Some say that our social events are the best benefit of all. Hexagon attracts people from all walks of life. Our membership comprises Hill staffers, teachers, lawyers, retired professors, homemakers, and foreign embassy personnel. Hexagon hosts several parties throughout the Washington area during the year. Highlights of each year’s social calendar include a formal holiday party in December and a black-tie charity gala during the run of the show in March.
Turn Laughs Into Cash for Charity
Hexagon’s sellout audience is a diverse, appreciative crowd of all ages and professions, including senators, representatives, Hill staffers, and other politically influential Washingtonians. In fact, during our annual Congress Night performance, lawmakers actually take part on stage with us, and the house is packed with fellow congressmen and supporters!
Throughout the fun and laughter, the charitable mission of Hexagon is never forgotten. All proceeds from all shows and many of our social events are donated to charity. In addition, members are continually presented with opportunities to volunteer with a charity directly — to help out with a toy drive, tutor, or deliver meals.
There are many ways to have fun while making a difference: as a Hexagon member (e.g., cast, crew, front of house, orchestra, writer), as a sponsor (corporate/individual), or as an advertiser.

Book Hexagoners for Your Next Event
|It’s called Hexagoners. No, we’re not talking about Hexagon members who pass on to the great theatre in the sky. We mean the year-round traveling troupe that believes “the show must go on” … and on and on. Hexagoners is a smaller group of performers and crew who take the show “on the road” for hire around the Washington area after the spring show.
Instead of hiring a band for your next conference or meeting, consider booking us! Hexagoners has entertained such groups as:
All money raised from the fees goes toward the charity selected by Hexagon for the year.
Hexagoner shows can be customized in content and length although shows usually range from 30 to 90 minutes. Besides raising thousands of dollars in additional funds for our charity beneficiaries, Hexagoners also fulfills a longstanding tradition of performing the show for free to the public at local outdoor amphitheaters, such as Lubber Run Park in Arlington, Mason District Park in Fairfax, and even the National Theatre downtown!
