Due to the current nature of this VIRTUAL Teaching Artist Residency, applicants from all locations will be accepted and considered!

SHADOW COMPANY is a high school performing theatre company for Philadelphia-area students. Each year, students participate in a summer-intensive where they collaborate to create a new work to be performed in the Philadelphia FringeArts Festival in September. Shadow Company works often include stories about their own life experiences or reflect the human experience. Our most recent show, IN THE MOMENT, was performed over social media and explored what life is like for teenagers during quarantine.

Other opportunities for our students include summer work programs, skill building workshops, studio classes, and get-togethers throughout the year.
