PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Berkshire Theatre Group announced that Gov. Deval L. Patrick will preside as honorary chair of this year's Made in the Berkshires Festival, which will be held over the Columbus Day weekend. 
 
The Festival opens with a gala performance at the Colonial Theatre on Friday, Oct. 5. The Made in the Berkshires Festival, now in its second year, features plays, films, dance, music and multi-media created and presented by local Berkshire County artists.  
 
"The Festival was such a huge success last year," said Kate Maguire, artistic director and chief executive officer of BTG. "Co-curators Hilary Somers Deely and Barbara Sims have, once again, helped put the spotlight on the incredibly vibrant arts community in our region. The 2012 festival will take place over a single weekend with eight performance blocks utilizing both the Colonial and the Stockbridge theater facilities. We've been able to schedule over 30 separate performances involving 100 local artists."
 
 
Festival-goers have the option of purchasing tickets for individual performance blocks at $15 or they can purchase an all-performance sponsor pass for $100, which allows them immediate seating at any performance and venue, as long as they arrive 15 minutes prior to show time. Future information on the festival and ticket availability can be found at the festival's website or directly from The Berkshire Theatre Group ticket office at 413-997-4444.
