Chester Theatre Company Nominated for Four Berkshire Theatre Awards

What a week it has been! First, we brought you the news that Every Brilliant Thing would be restaged at Peterborough Players this February, and now we’ve received word that Joel Ripka was nominated for a Berkshire Theatre Award for Outstanding Solo Performance Piece! Congratulations, Joel! But the great news doesn’t stop there. Both Every Brilliant Thing and I and You were nominated in the category of Outstanding New Play or Musical. And if that weren’t enough, Skeleton Crew received a nod for Outstanding Ensemble Production.

The awards will be presented November 6 on the St. Germain Stage in the Sydelle and Lee Blatt Performing Arts Center at Barrington Stage in Pittsfield, MA. No matter who takes home the awards that night, we know one thing for certain: Chester Theatre Company’s 2017 Season was a winner!
