Pony World Theater (PWT) is an ensemble of artists who create playful and evocative performances that engage audiences in meaningful questions. We combine striking visuals, elastic realities, and boundless imagination into uncommon narratives. Name: Our name, Pony World, references a point in the creative process when anything is still possible—when everyone can have their own pony. By infusing our entire process with this spirit, the company strives to create theatre that delights as it reveals, excites as it transforms.
We believe the world as we currently know it needs to be broken. The right story at the right time can break it. To do this, we tell stories that embrace the exceptional qualities of theatre and could only be presented on stage. We embrace the importance of inclusive casting and representing a diversity of voices. We also pledge that our work will be economically accessible to everyone.
Pony World Theatre began in 2009. The name "Pony World" references a point in the creative process when anything is still possible--when everyone can have their own pony. Since its creation, this company has served over 100 artists and 2,000 audience members. The majority of works presented by PWT are original creations or new works by local artists. PWT has presented 5 full-length productions and fifteen short works. The press has praised our work as "unexpected, inventive, and deranged," and "profound and powerful" and "transfixing".
