Barrington Stage Company (BSC) is a regional theatre company in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts. It was co-founded in 1995 by Artistic Director Julianne Boyd, and former Managing Director Susan Sperber in Sheffield, Massachusetts.

In 2004, BSC developed, workshopped, and premiered the hit musical The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Following the successful Broadway run, which nabbed two Tony Awards for Best Book and Best Featured Actor, BSC made the move to a more permanent home in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.

The company which was previously housed in the Consolati Performing Arts Center at Mount Everett High School in Sheffield, Massachusetts, purchased and renovated the Berkshire Music Hall in downtown in 2005. The venue was renamed the Boyd-Quinson Mainstage after its renovation. The 520-seat Mainstage Theatre is now located at 30 Union Street. In 2012 the company purchased an old VFW building on Linden Street in Pittsfield, turning it into the Sydelle and Lee Blatt Performing Arts Center . The Blatt Center includes the St. Germain Stage (formerly known as Stage 2) and a 99-seat space dubbed Mr. Finn's Cabaret. Additionally, the company acquired the Wolfson Theater Center which serves as the company's administrative offices and a rehearsal space in the center of Pittsfield today.

  • Show (Ain't Misbehavin') was great but make sure you know that when you buy a ticket at least for this show there is no mention that a mask is REQUIRED throughout the entire show. Thought this...

  • It's always such a pleasure to see a show at Barrington Stage. Terrific actors, singers, music and musicians. Great costumes, and set. Wonderful choreography and direction. Who could ask for anything more?
  • Cute little theater in Pittsfield, MA. Bought some tickets for an upcoming show and was able to get $30 tickets under their promotional offer for 18-40 year olds. I did not know about this promotion and I was glad the box office told me about it! Looking forward to see the show and plenty more shows in the future.
