The Williamstown Theatre Festival has developed a unique program which involves the community in the theatre festival. Since 2015, the Festival has had a year long program which engages people from the Berkshires community in creating a production of their own The Festival partners with other organizations in the Berkshires. In the fall, winter and spring, artists from the Festival offer acting, play writing and story-circle workshops for community members of all ages, social and economic backgrounds and abilities. Out of these workshops emerge those who will work on creating the stage production that tells a story about the Berkshires. Bob and I were fortunate enough to interview Hayley Sherwood and Boo Killebrew about this year’s production, Summer’s Soldier.
