ABOUT SHADOWLAND STAGES

PROFESSIONAL THEATRE. MADE IN THE HUDSON VALLEY.

SHADOWLAND STAGES in Ellenville, New York is Ulster County’s ONLY non-profit professional Actors’ Equity theatre. For 35 years we’ve been producing exhilarating drama, gut-busting comedy, and timely new plays in our gorgeously restored Art Deco-era former vaudeville theatre. Right now, as you might imagine, things are a little bit up in the air about our next season.

But we’re still keeping busy…

PRODUCING

Our MainStage season delivers the power of live performance in an intimate setting. Come delight in the talents of some of New York’s most exciting actors, directors and designers – right in the heart of the Hudson Valley’s beautiful and charming Ellenville.

PRESENTING

We love sharing our beautiful buildings with individuals and organizations. Inquire about our hosting your rehearsal, party, performance, meeting or conference in our MainStage or Studio; or housing your retreat guests in our actors’ house.

CLASSES

The Academy at SHADOWLAND STAGES offers an array of arts education options for youth and adults. This semester features small / socially distanced acting classes, but we’ll be adding private lessons across artistic genres in the future.

COMMUNITY

 SHADOWLAND STAGES enjoys partnerships and alliances with many local organizations and is proud to serve as an “economic engine” in our area. We’re also able to amplify the voice of local artists in the broader theatrical community.

HEALTH

The thrill of a live theatre performance causes audience members to synchronize their heart beats! 

Dr. Joseph Devlin, Head of Experimental Psychology at University College London, said: “Experiencing the live theatre performance was extraordinary enough to overcome group differences and produce a common physiological experience in the audience members.”

– University College London

HAPPINESS

“The arts provide shared experiences in public spaces—a community connection that heals the loneliness caused by isolation and social distancing.

72% of Americans believe “the arts unify our communities regardless of age, race, and ethnicity.” 81% of the population says the arts are a “positive experience in a troubled world.””

– Americans for the Arts

 

& OUR HOMETOWN

“The arts are kindling for the economy. Every visit to an arts event generates $31.47 per person beyond the ticket cost in spending on meals, retail, parking, and lodging.

This provides vital income to local merchants, energizes the downtown, and puts people to work.”

 –  Americans for the Arts
