Festival Description

Nestled in the Berkshire Hills of western Massachusetts, the Williamstown Theatre Festival is a summer-long celebration of theater that brings together a vast and impressive array of artists and offers audiences varied cultural experiences. From mid-June through late August every summer, WTF presents over two hundred performances of classic and new plays on its Main and Nikos Stages, Free Theatre, Cabaret, and countless readings, workshops, and other special events including a program for youngsters in North Adams called the Greylock Theatre Project. Since the Festival was founded in 1954, many WTF productions have transferred to Broadway, Off-Broadway and to regional theatres around the nation. Of equal import, WTF’s many training programs offer nearly two hundred aspiring theater artists and managers an opportunity to study acting or serve as interns with professional designers, directors and administrators.
