Frequently Asked Questions

What are the run times?

With so many wonderful performance choices on the campus the runs times will vary. Please call the box office for updated information.

What if I’m late?

We make every effort to start our performances on time but if you are late please know that we make every effort to seat you. Due to the intimacy of our theaters, and for the safety of the actors, it may not be possible to seat you in the seats that you’ve purchased for act one.

Is your theater handicap accessible?

Both the Tina Packer Playhouse and Elayne P. Bernstein Theatre are handicap accessible. Please park in our handicap spaces adjacent to each theatre. If possible please notify the box office prior to your arrival so that we may assist you during your visit.

Can I bring food and drink into the theater?

While we do have wonderful drinks, treats and snacks at each of our concession stands we ask that you only bring bottled water in our theaters.

Where do you recommend I eat before or after the show?  

We offer light fare (cookies, snacks and refreshments) at both of our concessions stands. There are many award winning restaurants in the center of Lenox. Some restaurants close down early in the Berkshires, so it’s always a good idea to call the restaurants ahead if you’re interested in a late night meal!

Can we picnic on the grounds?

We have a beautiful sprawling campus that includes picnic tables on our veranda like space overlooking the Rose Footprint Theater just outside The Tina Packer Playhouse as well as a tent should it ran. Please bring a picnic, or step inside to Josie’s Place and order a snack or drink from the bar. And, just outside the Elayne P. Bernstein Theater there are plenty of tables with umbrellas to shade you from the sun or rain. Mike’s Place is steps away where you can purchase snacks and treats and enjoy some lovely company.

What should I wear?

Please come dressed in casual attire. Both the Elayne P. Bernstein Theater and The Tina Packer Playhouse are temperature controlled spaces, the Rose Footprint Theater and The Mount are outdoors. If you get chilly in one of our theaters please speak to the house manager, blankets can be made available.

Can I bring a group?

Our facilities are perfect for hosting a night at the theatre! We’d love to help you celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and holiday parties. Please click here for more information on group sales and rentals.

How do I get to your Theatre?

Whether you are coming from New York City, Boston, Albany, or the Pioneer Valley we are easy to get to. Please take a look at our Directions for more information.

Is there parking?

Our campus offers parking for each of our individual theatres with accessible handicap parking for your convenience. Please follow the sawhorses and signs located at the entrance of our campus to the theater you are visiting.
