William Shakespeare once wrote
"All the World's a Stage" and no other passage can better describe the history
and philosophy of the Hudson Shakespeare Company. Throughout our history,
the company has produced a wide range of titles from the Bard to Modern theater
in a variety of outdoor and indoor venues. From city parks to courtrooms,
our mission has always been a simple one - to give our audience the best
theatrical experience possible.

Utilizing some of the best
young and experienced actors, directors and crew from around the tri-state area,
we conduct varied year round tours ranging from free outdoor productions to
student showcases. Our annual
presents four free outdoor productions of Shakespeare and other classical titles
running from May-August. Our
program includes indoor tours of titles by modern playwrights that are presented
in such diverse locations as city courtrooms, museums,
civic centers and old movie houses. Our
presents small showcases and full length shows for students ranging from
elementary up to college level. Through it all our philosophy in
performing Shakespeare and other works is simple:
Provide the atmosphere and let the words fire the imagination...
