PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Barrington Stage Company has announced the 2018 associate artists: director Joe Calarco, costume designer Jennifer Caprio, music director Vadim Feichtner and actress Elizabeth Stanley.

“It is my honor to welcome these outstanding new Associate Artists,” said Artistic Director Julianne Boyd. “Each one has made a significant contribution to the work we do at Barrington Stage. We could not have accomplished all that we have without their enthusiastic support and expertise.”

Formed in 2010, the Associate Artists program’s honorees include choreographer Joshua Bergasse, music director Darren R. Cohen, actor Mark H. Dold, actress Gretchen Egolf, composer/lyricist William Finn, actor/director Christopher Innvar, production stage manager Renee Lutz, actor Jeff McCarthy, casting director Pat McCorkle, lighting designer Scott Pinkney, scenic designer Brian Prather, director John Rando, actress Debra Jo Rupp, press director Charlie Siedenburg and playwright Mark St. Germain.

Associate artists are integral members of the BSC theater family who have made extraordinary contributions to the theater. They have helped the theater accomplish its mission, both by collaborating on top-notch work at BSC and by fostering a close relationship with the community. Associate artists are part of the artistic team and help by suggesting plays and musicals to be produced, by developing new work on both the Boyd-Quinson Mainstage and the St. Germain Stage and by consulting with the artistic director on various projects, both artistic and educational.

Calarco has been nominated for two Drama Desk Awards, the Jeff Award and the Evening Standard Award and won a Lucille Lortel Award, two Barrymore Awards and four Helen Hayes Awards. His published works as a playwright include “Walter Cronkite is Dead,” “In The Absence of Spring” and “Shakespeare’s R&J.” He sits on the executive board of SDC and is director of New Works/Resident Director at Signature Theatre in Arlington, Va.

Caprio has been involved in many Barrington Stage productions as well as more than 100 productions regionally and in opera. She is a graduate of Ithaca College and Carnegie Mellon.

Feichtner has been involved in many Barrington Stage productions as well as the television productions of Last Week Tonight and PBS Live at Lincoln Center.

Stanley has been in many productions at Barrington Stage as well as other roles originated on Broadway and in several off-Broadway roles. She is a volunteer teaching artist with Artists Striving To End Poverty and is a graduate of the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music.
