Barrington Stage Education Programs

Tim Pare and Jane O’Leary

As educators, as well as theatre goers, we know how important theatre can be for young people as they develop. The importance of the arts generally has been underrated by some educational policy makers. However, as we have interviewed theatre companies that  offer educational programs of different kinds to children and young adults,  we have seen how significant and important they are.  Having  heard generally  about the theatre programs Barrington Stage offers, we wanted more details. We were fortunate to interview Tim Pare and Jane O’Leary, the Director and Associate Director of the rich variety of programs available to young people in the Pittsfield and North Adams areas.  Tim and Jane provide an updated account of the programs, some of which are shown in  videos that were available on youtube.
