PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The key to Julianne Boyd’s success with the award-winning Barrington Stage Company sounds simple: Get people in the doors.
It’s how she got people in the doors that’s made the theater company not only a magnet for up-and-coming playwrights and seasoned actors but an integral part of the Berkshire community.
“The idea of bringing in the youth, with the parents, is a really strong idea that’s really stayed with us all 18 years,” said stage company’s artistic director and co-founder. “It’s really important to get families together and make it a family event.”
Her efforts in developing youth programs and a year-round theater presence with Barrington Stage Company, now entering its 19th year, were recognized on Wednesday at the annual Berkshire Chamber of Commerce Women in Business Luncheon at the Berkshire Hills Country Club.
