Walking Shadow Readers Theatre was originally launched in 2005 as Walking Shadow Theatre Company. It was founded by alumni of South Lakes High School in Reston, VA, who reunited to produce theatre in Washington, DC. The company transformed into a virtual reader’s theatre in June, 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on the changing world of American theatre.

Anna Larsen is a 25-year old ballet dancer who refuses to give up on her dreams
of career, love, and a fairy-tale ending. But when she becomes paralyzed in a car
accident, Anna is forced to consider whether those dreams are still possible - or if
they were ever possible to begin with.
As she learns how to adjust to the physical realities of her new life, Anna is also
forced to re-examine the relationships with those closest to her - and herself. A
play about independence, resilience, and Harry Potter.

FOX, BET, Lifetime, Danny DeVito, and more. 

What exactly is a Readers Theatre?
Readers Theatre is a style of theatre that focuses solely on the imagination and vocal expression of the readers. Readers Theatre requires no props, costumes, sets, or memorization. It is sometimes referred to as “theater of the mind,” and in our increasingly virtual world, it is an ideal setting in which to breathe life into a new play.
