Shakespeare’s magical (and final) play, The Tempest, a story of revenge and redemption on a magical, mysterious island, opens soon in a free production outdoors on the First Street Common in Pittsfield. The Tempest is directed by Enrico Spada and features Berkshire theatre veteran Glenn Barrett as Prospero, leading a cast of professionals and young adult actors from across the Berkshires.
Pittsfield Shakespeare in the Park’s third annual free production opens at 8pm on Thursday (July 21), following Pittsfield’s 3rd Thursdays street festival that evening, and runs Thursdays–Sundays at 8pm for 12 performances ending Sunday, August 7. Admission is free. Performances take place on Pittsfield’s First Street Common, located next to the Zion Lutheran Church. Audiences are invited to bring picnic blankets and lawn chairs and enjoy the romance under the stars.
