October updates

This weekend we’re all getting ready for Haunted Williamstown at the Milne Library.  After Juliana designed two wonderful sets for us over the past year, we thought the best way to say “thank you” was to offer ourselves up for whatever she needed–acting, tech, whatever.  So if you’re in Williamstown this weekend, don’t be surprised to see Main Street Stage actors in the haunted walk, the haunted museum, and playing Edgar Allen Poe.

Rehearsals for Marcus is Walking continue to go well.  That show will open in a couple of weeks.  Be on the look out for that.

But as the winter months approach, and fall ends, we all continue to be settled into our roles as teachers (mostly), balancing our attentions between the theatre and our students.

Oh, and keep an eye here for updates on our possible collaboration with Topia in Adams…

Redroom on the Loose and RBIT too!

While there has not been much posting going on, there is a lot happening in the Main Street Stage world (which I will catch you up on just as soon as I catch up on my grading).   And this weekend, Main Street Stage is part of all the cool happenings of the Northern Berkshires.

Submissions for our second annual short play festival are pouring in.  Click here to check out the Facebook page for more information about submitting your short play.

This weekend, Redroom is escaping the theatre and heading out into the world!  First stop, the raw space at Topia Arts in Adams (right on Park Street) for a fundraiser that will run from 6-9.  Redroom should be going on around 7:30.  Come check out the great space.  It’s a gutted Vaudeville house/Old movie theatre.

Redroom will also be making appearances at the Eclipse Mill Gallery, NoAMA building and Avalon Seafood Gallery this weekend during Open Studios.  Be on the look out for us.

And RBIT (Royal Berkshire Improv Troupe) will be performing Saturday night at the stage, same frog time, same frog price (8:00, $7.00).  Come check them out!
