The Theatre Department at Berkshire produces two plays and a musical on the mainstage each year. Recent performances have included The Crucible, Grease, Into The Woods, Urinetown, A Midsummer Night's Dream and Anything Goes.
Berkshire Theater is unique in being a totally hands-on, all-voices-heard, ensemble-first experience. The people involved value each other. Everyone's opinions, time, work process, and energy are valued. As a result, students really want to be here, regardless of the size of their role or what grade they are in. Students not only perform in the shows, but are essential in every way including props, costumes, cast blog, sets, lighting, publicity, and much more. On the night of any theater performance, Allen theater is the place to be.
"The expectations are high—not only for the performaces, but also for one another. I'm continually impressed with the level of ownership each student takes in the productions." - Jesse Howard, Director of Theater
