Exciting plans for Summer 2021
We are thrilled to announce that CTC is partnering with Hancock Shaker Village for the 2021 summer season under the name Chester@Hancock. We will be staging a three-show season outdoors under a tent on the grounds of the treasured Berkshires institution. This is a temporary change in location for the safety of our audiences, performers, staff and crew due to restrictions caused by COVID-19. We will return to the Town Hall Theatre in Chester in 2022.
The Village has the all the amenities necessary to provide a comfortable, enjoyable, and safe experience for everyone. Make a day of it! Grab a bite at the cafe, take a walk on the trails, and tour the 20 historic buildings on the campus. (Separate admission required.)
“I’m thrilled by our partnership,” says Producing Artistic Director Daniel Elihu Kramer, “which will offer a remarkable experience to our audiences, and an opportunity for patrons of each of our organizations to learn more about the other. Hancock Shaker Village is a treasure of our region and a beautiful location in all seasons. I look forward to sharing the summer there with you.”
“We are thrilled to welcome Chester Theatre Company this summer,” says Jennifer Trainer Thompson, Director of Hancock Shaker Village. “They’ve found a creative solution to a vexing challenge, and we welcome the opportunity to have outdoor live theater at the Village all summer long.”
The 2021 season will consist of three productions, one each in June, July, and August. Shows and exact dates and times will be announced soon, so stay tuned for more information.
We can’t wait to see you there!
