Pittsfield Shakespeare in the Park is committed to keeping the thrill of theatre alive with the artists and audience members who live in the Berkshires by presenting free, outdoor Shakespeare bringing together audience members, actors, designers, and technicians to our community.

Founded by Berkshires-based theatre artist and educator, PSP was launched in the summer of 2014 with A Midsummer Night’s Dream in Springside Park. PSP returned in 2015 with Romeo and Juliet in a new venue, the performance pavilion on the First Street Common. More than 5,000 people have enjoyed PSP’s free productions since its inception, fast becoming an annual tradition.
