Berkshire Fringe Festival Has It All – Comedy, Drama, Music, Labs – August 2-18 [Berkshire on Stage]
Founded in 2003 by Sara Katzoff, Peter Wise and Timothy Ryan Olson, the Berkshire Fringe Festival begins its second decade at its new home, the Shire City Santuary in Pittsfield. The Berkshire Fringe is an international center for new work in the heart of the Berkshire Community. Since its first events in 2005, the Berkshire Fringe has become a vital testing ground and has hosted over 500 emerging performers while bringing nearly 100 full-length original productions to the Berkshires.
Participating artists are given space to develop and perform their newest concepts, teach community workshops and invite audiences to engage more deeply in the creative process through open rehearsals and discussions.
