We are dog & pony dc.

We believe in the power of collaboration, between artists and with the audience.

We’re pro-innovation and taking necessary leaps of faith.

We believe playfulness and generosity amplifies the impact of our work.

We seek to upend the way non-profit theatre is made and consumed, repositioning it in service to its audience and community

You complete us.

Think you’re too sophisticated to play along with an interactive theater company? Well, think again. The clever folks at Dog & Pony DC have collectively devised a theater piece about a small, fictional Midwestern town, and it requires much audience interaction. The result is so gently satiric and utterly involving that you’ll find yourself voting for and against issues before you even realize you’ve raised your hand.

You all have hit upon a mode of development and production that successfully fosters a wide range of community dialogues about the nature of arts, culture, and society in a way that is thought-provoking, emotionally moving, and incredibly immersive.

You won’t find Beertown on any map, but you’ll find the town’s essence in your heart as you struggle to figure out what items best tell your own story, and realize that memories change slightly each time you remember something, usually a result of twisting some of the details to create a supposedly better narrative. What starts out as a fun stay in a quirky little town ends up being surprisingly emotional.
