Berkshire Theatre Group Receives $45,000 from Shubert Foundation
PITTSFIELD — Berkshire Theatre Group (BTG) announced it received a prestigious $45,000 grant from the New York-based Shubert Foundation, which provides grant support to theatres throughout the country.
“We’re deeply thankful to the Shubert Foundation for its grant to BTG,” said Artistic Director and CEO Kate Maguire. “The special aspect of support from the Shubert Foundation is that their grants go directly to helping underwrite the work we produce on our stages.
