Shakespeare & Company in Lenox has launched a fundraising campaign to make half-priced theatre tickets available to frontline workers in the Berkshires. The Give a Seat fund, created to provide essential workers of all types with half-priced theater tickets. 

Designed to thank these important members of the community...

Tuesday, Nov. 30th is the tenth anniversary of 'Giving Tuesday'. Donations that are made to Shakespeare & Company as part of the campaign will be used to make tickets available, at the discounted price, for a costumed reading of The Wickhams: Christmas at Pemberley, which is scheduled to run on Thursday, Dec. 16th through Sunday, Dec. 19th at the Tina Packer Playhouse. 

Bonnie Stevens, director of Development for Shakespeare & Company...

Frontline workers are all around us doing essential jobs that keep our communities up-and-running,” said Stevens... This is just one way we can give back to them for their tireless work: offering a well-earned night out at the theater.
