A Virtual Stage
Our mission is to provide a virtual platform for playwrights to hear their in-development works read aloud to refine their works through performance and constructive feedback. Playwrights receive interdisciplinary feedback from our company members to develop their work. We provide feedback from a panel of professionals in fields including writing, editing, playwriting, education, acting, directing, and technical theatre. We also have experts bringing perspectives from varied fields such as mental health, technology, and theology.
Walking Shadow Readers Theatre is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
Thank You For A Wonderful Third Season!
Our third season has come to a close, and we’d like to thank our audience and donors for all of your wonderful support this year! Please join us May 26-June 9 for our third annual One Acts Play Festival!
Interstate & International Connections
Our virtual stage allows Walking Shadow Readers Theatre to engage with playwrights and actors across the globe! Time zones may be tricky scheduling hurdles, but the show goes on with a nice cup of tea or coffee.
