The mission of Double Nickels Theatre is to produce theatrical presentations using reminiscence theatre to reinvigorate the art of conversation and to communicate across generations and cultures, and their vision is to become the preeminent reminiscent theatre best known for celebratory performances that capture the legacy of seniors and veterans beyond the Washington, DC Metropolitan area.


Guiding Principle
 “The moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.  All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred.  A whole stream of events issue from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way”.

“Whatever you can do or dream you can do, begin it.  Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.  Begin it now”.  -Goethe

BBAR's non-resident partner, Double Nickels Theatre Company, was established as a reminiscence theatre to celebrate the lives of seniors while they can still hear their applause. It is through gathering these stories from the elders that we are able to research, dramatize, record and preserve the rich culture and history that is to be found in our communities.
