Pittsfield, MA – Berkshire Theatre Group and Artistic Director/CEO, Kate Maguire, are pleased to announce the Summer 2013 Theatre Season.
85 years ago the first professional theatre company in the Berkshires created its inaugural season in Stockbridge. Berkshire Theatre Festival has been an annual leader in developing the Berkshires as one of the world’s most exciting cultural destinations. Of this year, Artistic Director/CEO, Kate Maguire says, “I am well aware of the significance of being able to announce our 85th season of honored masterpieces and treasured stories. This year, as ever, an adventurous and great group of American artists will join us at our historic stages—still in Stockbridge and now also in Pittsfield—to make theatre together again with our wonderful community. How could I not be thrilled to invite audiences to Oklahoma!, The Lion in Winter, Same Time, Next Year, Anna Christie, Extremities, and stories by Berkshire women writers Mary Mott and the great Edith Wharton? This festival combined with the roster of shows already announced is going to make for one great year for the Berkshire Theatre Group!”
