Berkshire Theatre Group and Artistic Director/CEO, Kate Maguire, are excited to announce auditions for its 10th Annual Children’s Theatre Production, the show is to be announced at a later date.
This year marks the exciting 10th anniversary of Berkshire Theatre Group’s Annual Children’s Theatre Production. For the past 10 years, BTG's community production has brought together children and adults who have learned from each other all in the midst of collaboration and creativity. “Because of the amazing relationships I have made at BTG, I now have mentors that have helped me grow creatively and as an actor,” said Alex Roman, a sophomore at Pittsfield High School, who was one of the many talented chorus members in last year’s community production Seussical.
Ticket proceeds benefit BTG PLAYS!, Berkshire Theatre Group's Year-Round Education Program. At the heart of BTG PLAYS! is a passionate commitment to bring live theatre and all its inherent excitement and creativity to children throughout our region. In addition, this is the first theatrical experience on a professional stage that many of these children will have the opportunity to participate in. We hope this experience will stimulate a life-long love of theatre and help produce the next generation of theatregoers, if not actors or other theatre professionals.
Last year's 9thAnnual Children's Theatre Production Seussical was a heart-warming and widely successful production, featuring over 100 talented children and adults from the community. This production marked the second time actors have been flown in The Colonial Theatre during a live performance, the first being two years ago in Peter Pan.
Berkshire Theatre Group's 10th Annual Children's Theatre Production will be directed by Travis G. Daly, with music direction by Mark Gionfriddo.
