PS21 in Chatham Announces 2018 Spring Schedule of Performances [Berkshire on Stage]
Chatham’s PS21: Performance Spaces for the 21st Century has announced their Spring 2018 program of dance and theater. Marking the inauguration of the new state-of-the-art black box theater will be a festive opening and dance performance by Caleb Teicher & Nic Gareiss.
Other season highlights include three theater productions: a staged reading of Erma Bombeck’s “At Wit’s End;” and two plays presented by the Actors’ Ensemble: “The Gun Show” and “The Chairs.” The spring season will also include dance performances by Jamal Jackson Dance Company and Larry Keigwin & Nicole Wolcott.
“We are now able to offer programming year-round, and we’re excited about this first season of programming in our new theater,” explained PS21 Board President Judy Grunberg. “We want PS21 to bring people together and for the arts to become a part of their lives.”
The new theater – which replaces the tent that served as PS21’s main venue for 12 years – has an elegant, flexible design and includes state of the art sound and lighting. The black box is a flexible 40’x60’ performance space that is enclosed in the winter and seats up to 99. In warmer months, the east wall slides open and the black box transforms into the stage for the 300-seat open-air pavilion theater.
