About Us About Us

In 2019, Shadowland Artists, Inc. dba SHADOWLAND STAGES begins its 35th consecutive year of live theatre in its 1920’s art deco vaudeville/movie house on Canal St. in Ellenville, New York. Operating traditionally as a summer theatre, SHADOWLAND is Ulster County’s ONLY non-profit professional Actors’ Equity theatre. Originally started in 1985 by a collective of performers from NYC who moved to Ellenville, bought stock in their company, and produced theatre for 2 years; the not-for-profit Shadowland Artists, Inc. was born in 1987. All these years later, and after decades of growth, SHADOWLAND now operates throughout the year, and has expanded its season from 5 to 6 productions AND added an annual holiday production.

In addition to its season (presented at the MainStage), SHADOWLAND contributes to Ulster County’s arts landscape through its growing education program (The Academy at SHADOWLAND STAGES), new play reading series, classic film series, and regularly produced special events with other area organizations (such as the Ellenville Public Library and Museum, SUNY Ulster, SUNY New Paltz, Actors & Writers, Vanaver Caravan, Ellenville Central School district, and many more). Our extensive contributions have led to many recognitions, including ‘Citizen of the Year’ from the Ellenville/Wawarsing Noonday Club, recognition by the Ellenville NAACP for our “contributions to the community”, and being named “Arts Organization of the Year” in 2013’s inaugural Ulster County Executive’s Arts Awards.
