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.

Are your theatres handicap accessible?

All our theatres (the Tina Packer Playhouse, Elayne P. Bernstein Theatre, The Roman Garden Theatre, and The New Spruce 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 encourage patrons to enjoy our beautiful campus and bring your own food and drinks before performances, we ask that you only bring bottled water in our theaters.

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

Due to COVID-19, we can only offer bottled water. 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 rain. Please bring a picnic and enjoy the grounds. And just outside the Elayne P. Bernstein Theater there are plenty of tables with umbrellas to shade you from the sun or rain.

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 New Spruce Theatre, the Roman Garden Theatre, 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.
