Catching up

Posted in Uncategorized on January 11th, 2010 by kellinewby

It’s a new year at Main Street Stage and a lot of exciting things are coming up.  But first, let’s review the end of 2009…

  • Our collaboration with Haunted Williamstown went very well in October.
  • We had a successful run of “Marcus is Walking” this past November/December.

We also received of a couple of honors.

  • Gail Burns named All My Sons one of the best shows of the decade on her site.  It was supposed to have been published in the Transcript, but, well, no one knows what happened.
  • Jeffery Borak (Berkshire Eagle) named Linda White’s performance in All My Sons as one of the best performances of the year.

We have a lot of upcoming projects as well:

  • The Short Play Festival is in the later planning stages.  We are finishing up the selection process (we had three times the submissions we had last year) and auditions are planned for the end of this month.
  • Look for upcoming RBIT (Royal Berkshire Improve Troupe) shows at the Stage and at Barrington Stage II.
  • The Redroom may be resurfacing in the next month as well.
  • The Berkshire 24 Hour Theatre project is being planned for the 23rd and 24th of April.  Please get in touch with us if you are interested in participating.
  • The North Adams Playwright Mentoring Program show will be in Late March or early April.
  • We are also talking about a February vacation camp, some collaborations with MCLA students and a comedy in the spring.

And lastly, the end of last year brought in many new collaboration opportunities for us that are still in the early stages.  The Main Street Stage plans to collaborate with Topia Arts in Adams on several projects this year, including the 24 Theatre Project and the Symphony of 100 Carpenters, both scheduled in mid-late spring.

Stay tuned for specifics on all of these projects and more!
