Mission Statement

Walking the dog Theater exists for the purpose of creating theater events that inspire, entertain, and build community. Vital aspects of this purpose include: engaging children, youth, and adults in their own creative potential, stimulating artistic life in underserved areas, supporting the work and growth of professional artists, and staging William Shakespeare's plays.


A little history:

Founded in Australia in 1997 by two Americans and two Australians, and incorporated as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization in 1998, the company thrived for several years as a professional touring ensemble, performing and giving workshops over three continents, before landing in Columbia County, New York, and deciding to make a home in the beautiful Hudson Valley, just 130 miles north of New York City.

Walking the dog Theater established itself by creating avant-garde theater performances which incorporated movement and live, original music, and through successful children's productions employing the same style. The touring ensemble gave performances and workshops in venues as varied as festival theaters, universities, schools, and prisons.

In 2006, Walking the dog Theater decided to create a true home in Columbia County, New York. As the company deepens its roots in Hudson and the county, it continues to welcome collaborations with local artists and the opportunity to discover new possibilities and directions for meaningful theater. WTD's professional productions and educational programs focus on freeing the creativity of the artist, developing Ensemble Theater, and invoking the spirit of a play so that audiences can become enlivened by the theater event.

The Independent awarded the collaborative production of HAMLET best overall theatrical production 2007, and David Anderson' Hamlet best male actor 2007.
