Request for Statements of Interest – Property Development

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.


Shakespeare & Company is a professional live theatre company in the heart of the Berkshires, presenting a vibrant summer performance season featuring the works of Shakespeare in repertory with classic and contemporary plays. The Company offers one of the most extensive actor training programs by a regional theatre in the country, and is also home to an award-winning and nationally recognized theatre-in-education program.
