Shakespeare & Company announced an initiative to invite qualified entities, including real estate or other business and property development firms and non-profits, to propose ideas to further develop the Company’s 33-acre property in Lenox.
For more than four decades, Shakespeare & Company has been one of the premiere cultural attractions of Berkshire County, and a globally recognized landmark for theatrical performance, arts education, and professional training. This project represents a unique opportunity to collaborate directly with the Company.
Since it became Shakespeare & Company’s permanent home nearly 20 years ago, the 70 Kemble Street campus has been home to countless groundbreaking innovations in performance, education, and training. Now, in the final stages of a comprehensive strategic planning process, a desire to create even more meaningful and immersive experiences in the arts for a growing and increasingly diverse audience, and a chance to strengthen the Company’s future through any potential property monetization, the Board of Trustees and staff of Company are excited to identify a partner to envision a more fully activated property in a vibrant and desirable section of the Berkshires. We look forward to receiving and reviewing the most effective ideas towards this effort.
Questions about the statement of interest submission process can be directed via email to Allyn Burrows, Artistic Director, or by calling (917) 531-3022.
