WAM Theatre’s artistic director Kristen van Ginhoven has announced highlights of the 2014 season. The Berkshire-based professional theatre company will celebrate its fifth anniversary with an inspiring and thought-provoking series of plays readings, special events, panel discussions, and educational programs that continue its mission to focus on women artists and stories of women and girls.
“I’m delighted to announce the diverse programming we’ve planned for WAM Theatre’s fifth anniversary year,” said van Ginhoven. “While our main production occurs in the fall and will again be unveiled at our summer benefit event, we are thrilled to be offering an exciting line-up of events from March through September that fulfills our mission to share the stories of women and girls. This includes the launch of Fresh Takes, a wonderful new series of play readings that will feature local theater professionals.”
WAM Theatre’s fifth anniversary year begins in March with the Berkshire premiere of Motherhood Out Loud, a culturally and gender diverse series of monologues on the subject of motherhood, conceived by Susan R. Rose and Joan Stein and written by a host of celebrated writers. Motherhood Out Loud will be presented on March 28 and 29 at Berkshire Theatre Group’s Unicorn Theatre in Stockbridge.
