FRANKLIN, Mass. — Patrick McKinney of Pittsfield has earned the role of Male Understudy in the Dean College production of "I Hate Hamlet," beginning Thursday, Dec. 2 through Sunday, Dec. 5, 2021.
 
According to a press release:
 
Andrew Rally, a young and successful television actor, relocates to New York, where he rents a marvelous, gothic apartment. With his television career in limbo, Rally is offered the opportunity to play Hamlet onstage, but there's one problem: He hates Hamlet. His dilemma deepens with the entrance of the ghost of actor John Barrymore, who arrives intoxicated and in full costume to the apartment that once was his. In this play by award-winning author Paul Rudnik, the contrast between the two actors, the dissipated Barrymore, whose Hamlet was the greatest of his time, and Rally, the television star, leads to a wildly funny duel over women, art, success, duty, television, and yes, the apartment.
 
"I Hate Hamlet" is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.
 
The Dean College production of "I Hate Hamlet" will take place in the Main Stage in the Campus Center at Dean College, 109 West Central Street, Franklin at 7:30 p.m. Thursday - Saturday, with matinee performances at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
 
Dean College welcomes families and guests over the age of 12 to all our performances, provided patrons have complied with all COVID-19 safety guidelines, including masking indoors and showing proof of vaccination.

Greenagers Youth Crew to Assess County Bridges and Culverts

By Brittany PolitoiBerkshires Staff

The survey is part of a larger hazard mitigation program to identify areas for flooding and ecological damage caused by climate change.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Greenagers youth crew will be assessing the bridges and culverts of Pittsfield, Lenox, Stockbridge, and New Marlborough over the next two years. 

The environmentally interested teens will be determining what improvements are needed for the infrastructure to support increased precipitation and flooding, wildlife crossings, and stormwater management.

"I think sort of the biggest thing we want to get out there is that if you see folks assessing these structures or in your neighborhood, then it's a Greenagers crew, that it's youth doing this project in their area," Courteny Morehouse, Berkshire Regional Planning Commission's senior planner for the Environmental & Energy Program said.

"And then if they want to get in touch and learn more about the project, or just get engaged, they can contact me they can, they can go and talk to the youth that are there, mostly just want to get folks knowledgeable about the project that's happening."

At the project's conclusion, the four communities will be given a Road Stream Crossing Management Plan (RSCMP) with an inventory of its road street crossings and culverts that need attention ranked by priority.
