Berkshire Theatre Group has announced the full schedule of events for the Made in the Berkshires Festival, which will be held this weekend (Friday-Sunday, November 11-13) at the Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield and the Unicorn Theatre in Stockbridge. Now in its sixth year, the festival is a celebration of local art and artists.
The sixth annual festival features cutting-edge theatrical works performed as staged readings, live music, film, short stories and dance in a festival atmosphere like no other. New and innovative pieces as well as established work will be presented by local Berkshire County playwrights, actors, directors, musicians and performers. Featured as performance blocks, Made in the Berkshires will allow audiences to enjoy the breadth and depth of the artistic talent that has landed in Berkshire County while celebrating the best in the visual and performing arts. Professional artists and artists-in-the-making gather to share their talent with the Berkshire community. The festival will once again be curated by Hilary Somers Deely and Barbara Sims, two local artists who have helped create the rich cultural tapestry that permeates this area.
