BTF presents theatre that matters - world premieres, contemporary works, and classics that speak to who we are in our world today. 

Since 1928, Berkshire Theatre Festival (BTF) has produced over 560 fully staged productions, an eclectic mix of revivals, classics and world premieres, embracing fully their role as a true theatrical “festival.” Their Stockbridge stage, the longest-running theatre in Berkshire County and one of the oldest in the United States , has consistently supported the work of emerging playwrights, directors, actors and designers. More than 2,150 actors have worked at BTF in more than 6,300 performances; 30 have won Academy Awards, 36 Tony Awards and 34 have received Emmys. Twenty-seven of their playwrights have won Pulitzer Prizes, another three have won the Nobel Prize. No history of the American Theatre over the last eight decades would be complete without including the Berkshire Theatre Festival in its pages.  Currently, BTF's season consists of nine fully produced productions running in two theatres, the 408 seat Main Stage and the 122 seat Unicorn Theatre, from May through December.
