12th Annual Community Production of A CHRISTMAS CAROL Returns to The Colonial Theatre

Berkshire Theatre Group is pleased to announce the 12th annual community production of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. Adapted by Eric Hill and directed by Travis G. Daly, this production will be presented for the seventh time at The Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield. A Christmas Carol runs December 9 through December 22.

Celebrate the timeless holiday tradition of A Christmas Carol with the whole family, and revel in the joy and redemptive power of Christmas as told in the timeless tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, the infamous miser who is shown the error of his ways and reformed by four spirits. Journey back to Victorian England and experience the classic story filled with holiday carols and the wonderment of the season.

Berkshire Theatre Group presents a special community and sensory-friendly performance of A Christmas Carol on Wednesday, December 13 at 7pm. A "sensory-friendly" performance is a production that is slightly modified to accommodate individuals with sensory-input disorders, such as people on the autism spectrum. At this performance, you will notice relaxed "house rules;" people may need to get up, move around, and leave the theatre during the performance. There is no expectation that the audience will be completely quiet during the performance. Our goal is to create an environment where people with autism or sensory needs, along with their families, can enjoy coming to the theatre together and will feel comfortable, supported and free to be themselves.

Tickets to A Christmas Carol are $38 for adults, and $28 for children 16 and under. Tickets to the Special Community and Sensory-Friendly Performance on December 13 at 7pm are $5. Contact the Colonial Ticket Office at 111 South Street, Pittsfield by calling 413-997-4444, or online at Ticket Offices are open Monday-Friday 10am-5pm, Saturdays 10am-2pm or on any performance day from 10am until curtain.

The Colonial Theatre, founded in 1903, and Berkshire Theatre Festival, founded in 1928, are two of the oldest cultural organizations in the Berkshires. In 2010, under the leadership of Artistic Director and CEO Kate Maguire, the two organizations merged to form Berkshire Theatre Group (BTG). Berkshire Theatre Group's mission is to support wide ranging artistic exploration and acclaimed performances in theatre, dance, music and entertainment. Every year, BTG produces and presents performances to over 68,000 attendees and, through our Educational Program, serves over 13,000 Berkshire County schoolchildren annually. BTG's celebrated stages reflect the history of the American theatre; they represent a priceless cultural resource for the community.
