Barrington Stage Company and the Berkshire Visitors Bureau are excited to offer ½ TIX again in 2012, a program administered through a partnership between the two organizations. Now celebrating its 11th year, the ½ TIX program offers half-priced tickets to residents and visitors in the Berkshire community. Patrons can buy same-day half-priced tickets to cultural events at area ½ TIX Booths June 15 through September 2, 2012.
The 12 cultural venues participating in the 2012 ½ TIX Program are:
Barrington Stage Company
Berkshire Choral Festival
The Berkshire Fringe
Berkshire Theatre Group
The Capitol Steps at Cranwell Resort
Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival
Shakespeare & Company
Williamstown Theatre Festival
Half Tix will be sold at four locations this season. Some changes have been made. With the closing of the Adams Visitors Center, the north county operation has moved to MASS MoCA, and the Chatham, NY location will not be participating this year. The four locations are:
Barrington Stage Company Box Office (30 Union Street, Pittsfield)
Lenox Visitors Center (at the Lenox Library, 18 Main St., Lenox)
MASS MoCA (87 Marshall Street, North Adams)
Triplex Cinema (70 Railroad Street, Great Barrington)
The ½ TIX booths will operate from June 15 through September 2, 2012 from noon until 4:30pm, Tuesday through Sunday (closed Monday).
