Every summer our Shakespeare Under the Stars series offers performances by both our Mainstage company of adults and our Young Company of school-age actors, all at the UMass Center for Renaissance Studies in Amherst.

Our Educational Division offers workshops and classes to children age 6-17 at the Williston Northampton School in Easthampton.winterstale

Other recent activities of the Company have included productions of the original play Burning Words by Peter Wortsman, and a reading of the Welsh epic poem The Mabinogi.
