This past fall marked the 7th Annual Berkshire Theatre Group’s Children’s Theatre production. Oliver! was performed in early September. 219 children grades 3 and up from school districts throughout Berkshire County participated as well as a number of adults from of our local community. The cast performed to sold-out audiences at The Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield, MA. This is the first professional theatrical experience that many of these children will have the opportunity to participate in. We hope this experience will stimulate a life-long love of theater and help to produce the next generation of theatre goers, if not actors or other theatre professionals.
Proceeds from the production benefit BTG PLAYS!, Berkshire Theatre Group’s Year-Round Education Program.
Auditions for the BTG’s Annual Children’s Theatre Production will occur in the late spring and are open to children in grade 3 and up. Auditions will be by appointment. Rehearsals begin at the end of June with the production in August.
I definitely enjoy performing... I choose BTF over other theatre companies because I feel so ‘at home’.
