Welcome to Hudson Village Theatre.

I believe there is something miraculous and transformative about great art. I believe it can ignite our passions, spark our dreams, and speak to the depths of our being. And I believe great art truly has more power to uplift us, change us, and bring us closer to a shared experience of wonder and joy than nearly anything else. Matthew Tiffin Artistic Director, HVT
