Shadowland Stages

“The Catskill’s Cultural Gem”

Enters season 33 in 2017!



Shadowland Theatre in 1936, a popular movie house.

Dedicated to high-quality, professionally produced plays and musicals, Shadowland is located in the charming village of Ellenville, in Ulster County NY. Ellenville is 100 miles from New York City, in a picturesque and narrow valley between the Shawangunk Mountains to the east and the Catskill Mountains to the west. Shadowland performs in its own building, which first opened on July 3, 1920, as an art-deco movie and vaudeville house.

Substantial renovations in recent years have completely rebuilt the interior of the old theatre, retaining the art-deco features while creating a tiered, 186 seat, intimate semi-thrust stage. All seats are within 35 feet of the stage and have clear sightlines in the technically well-equipped and acoustically outstanding space.

After years of renovations, repairs and upgrades, your donations and support have helped create an exquisite theatre with new stages and even a new name! Please enjoy our gallery or our Facebook page for all of the latest and greatest updates at Shadowland Stages.
