Overview:Ambassador Theater International Cultural Center's (ATICC) mission is to build international cultural awareness, provide a high standard of international repertoire based on close relations with the diplomatic and cultural representatives of different countries in the United States, and provide international interactive educational programs for the youth of the District of Columbia, DC Metro area, and around the US.
Ambassador Theater is committed to raising cultural awareness and opening a cultural dialogue on the international level. "I was at a loss at how to make it a reality, however. A tying together of people from all across the world is no easy task. After all, there are over six billion people in the world today. But as I learned, sometimes all you need is one. Standing at about three feet high was my impetus for ATICC: my four year old student, Thomas. One day, following an acting lesson, Thomas overheard me discuss my dreams with his parents, and began fiddling with his pockets. Pulling at the side of my skirt, he looked up at me and said, “I want you to start a theater,” and held out a single, crumpled one dollar bill in the palm of his hand. Thomas became our first official supporter, but it was not that dollar that meant so much, it was something much more profound and timeless that this young boy demonstrated that day: passion.” Hanna Bondarewska
