Berkshire Theatre Festival
Berkshire Theatre Group was created in 2010 by the merger of two of Berkshire County's oldest cultural organizations, Berkshire Theatre Festival founded in 1928 in Stockbridge and The Colonial Theatre built in 1903 in Pittsfield. One of the largest and most exciting arts organizations in the area, BTG oversees the development, production and presentation of theatre, music and the performing arts on 5 stages.
Our campus in Stockbridge, which is home to Berkshire Theatre Festival, presents work at three venues: The Fitzpatrick Main Stage, The Unicorn Theatre and The Neil Ellenoff Stage.
THE FITZPATRICK MAIN STAGE (408 seats), founded in 1928, is the ultimate "summer theatre." This iconic building, designed by Stanford White, helped establish the Berkshires as a cultural destination. Each summer, the finest in classical theatre and world premieres are produced on our historic stage.
THE UNICORN THEATRE (122 seats), a theatrical jewel, is the home for new and emerging artists, and challenging and thoughtful work.
In 2011, Berkshire Theatre Group built THE NEIL ELLENOFF STAGE. This glorious outdoor stage provides the perfect back drop for family entertainment.
