Working in the Theatre: Theatrical Animals

Animal Behaviorist and Theatrical Animal Trainer Bill Berloni has worked with many different types of animals in the theatre for over 40 years.  We follow the journey as he demonstrates the process of working with animals on the stage.  From training and engaging with rescues off stage to working with the talent (including the incredible Isabella Rossellini) to making routine checks at the theatre, making sure everyone is comfortable and happy – Bill has truly created a world where theatrical animals and their friends at the theatre are supported.

American Theatre Wing’s Working in the Theatre documentary series features the most fascinating people on the stage, behind the scenes, and in the audience. From Tony Awards® and Obie Awards® winning artists to the next generation of theatre makers, we capture theatre’s inner-workings, industry luminaries, and unique stories that surround important work.
