The Williamstown Theatre Festival was founded in 1955 in the spirit of innovation in Live Theatre. Located in the scenic Berkshires of Western Massachusetts, it is lauded as one of the top Professional Development Programs in the country and is specifically designed around presenting artists with unique opportunities to express themselves creatively. Williamstown itself, where the Festival is held each year, is a hub of artistic energy.

We are delighted to be kicking off the new TheatreWorks Silicon Valley blog as we begin our 2015/16 season!
As you may know, over the past 46 years, we’ve performed all over Silicon Valley. Currently we alternate between three shows at the Lucie Stern Theatre in Palo Alto, and five shows at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts. But in all those years, we’ve never had a theatre of our very own.
This season, we’re embracing that nomadic quality that makes us TheatreWorks Silicon Valley. Our ubiquitous nature means that wherever you are, you can make us your artistic home. Whether you’re seeing our mainstage shows, participating in our Bay Area-wide education programs, attending one of our galas or donor events, or checking in for behind-the-scenes info on our new blog…you are a part of the TWSV family.
As part of our family, you help inform the work we present and the resources we give you. If there’s something you want to learn more about, let us know! If there’s an actor or designer you have specific questions for – ask them here! Make TWSV your artistic home, and celebrate our 46th Season with us: we couldn’t do it without you.
Thank you for joining us!
