Following $1.1 Million Restoration, Berkshire Theatre Group to Open Thaddeus Clapp House

Following a $1.1 million restoration, Berkshire Theatre Group (BTG) will celebrate the opening of the Thaddeus Clapp House at 74 Wendell Ave., Pittsfield, on Thursday, Oct. 17 from 5 to 7 p.m. This celebration follows a record-breaking summer theater season, with ticket sales up 25% and an additional 5,000 patrons recorded over the 2018 season. In 2013, BTG bought the Thaddeus Clapp House to serve as actor housing, and now, BTG celebrates the realization of that goal and more. Major funding for the restoration of the Thaddeus Clapp House has been provided by the Massachusetts Cultural Facilities Fund, a program of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, administered through a collaborative arrangement between Mass Development and the Massachusetts Cultural Council. BTG acknowledges Allegrone Construction, which served as general contractor for the restoration project, and the continued support of the city of Pittsfield. Additionally, it thanks Wayfair and the Annie Selke Cos. for their sponsorships of furniture and interior décor. Many other project partners who helped make the restoration possible will be acknowledged at the event.
