This weekend is a playgoer’s delight and/or dilemma. There are four plays opening, one that has just opened and a one evening play reading. As some theatres are ending their seasons, others are starting their seasons. We are fortunate to have almost year round theatre in our area. Concluding successful seasons, Barrington Stage is presenting Camping With Henry and Tom and Oldcastle offers The Ride Down Mount Morgan. The Berkshire Theatre Group just opened The Bakelite Masterpiece. The Dorset Players are starting their season with Blithe Spirit and Hubbard Hall is kicking off with Peter and the Starcatcher.
Fortunately, except for the Dorset Players production of Blithe Spirit which runs only this weekend and next, the other productions are running until October 23. However, you should check their websites for dates and times.
The play reading of Hamlet with Finn Wittrock as Hamlet at Shakespeare and Company is only Saturday, October 8 at 7 pm.
We have already posted a blog of our interviews with actors from The Ride Down Mount Morgan. We have also interviewed actors from Blithe Spirit and Peter and the Starcatcher. These programs will play at our new time this Sunday noon to one on WBTN. We will post blogs about them after they have aired on WBTN. We will be posting our interview on the reading of Hamlet shortly.
