Berkshire Theatre Group is proud to present the first annual Fall Children’s Show! This new program gives elementary school students the chance to perform their favorite stories on stage. Featuring 140 students, Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka KIDS is connecting families across Berkshire County.

Parents are gathered around a white table with crafting supplies. One mother is holding a long swath of tulle, others are cutting out lengths of various fabrics.

Parents work together to help build costumes, sets, and props for Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka KIDS, creating a truly collaborative environment that allows the whole family to be part of the production!

Parents and children are seated around a white table shaping tulle and wire into squirrel tails. Everyone is intensely concentrating on the task at hand, though some are smiling while they work.
