Free Shakespeare—back for a fourth year!

Pittsfield Shakespeare in the Park will return for a fourth year to present Twelfth Night, Shakespeare’s delightful comedy of misplaced passion and mistaken identities, in a free outdoor production on the First Street Common.

One of Shakespeare’s most loved comedies, Twelfth Night tells the tale of twins separated by a shipwreck, a countess surprised by her capacity for love, a servant who oversteps his place and mischievous pranks carried to the extreme. Featuring live music and slapstick comedy, it is the perfect complement to a beautiful Berkshire summer evening under the stars.

Since 2014, more than 8,000 audience members have enjoyed our free all-ages productions under the stars in Pittsfield’s parks. Stay tuned to find out more about Twelfth Night in the coming months.

July 20–August 6, 2017
Performances Thursday–Sunday at 8pm

First Street Common, next to the Zion Lutheran Church
Admission is FREE
