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.

We appreciate dog & pony dc’s high artistic standards and aspiration to change the audience’s perception of its role in a theatrical experience.

I felt valued as an audience member, I felt committed to the the rest of the audience and the cast, and I felt like I had experienced something I could ONLY have experienced in that room, on that night – how cool! That’s not an experience you get anywhere else!

Johanna Middleton, audience member

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 know a performance is good when all the crazy, seemingly out-­of-­control moving parts add up to an infectious entertainment experience.

Gidon [my son] still talks about Beertown ALL THE TIME. Refers to it constantly. Very very impactful…
