ADAMS, Mass. — Starting in May, the Adams Theater is presenting a programming season featuring concerts, dance performances, a comedy, a musical homage to the Spirit of Ukraine, and the official kickoff to PRIDE weekend in the Berkshires.

Community members and visitors are invited to come see how construction has progressed in the theater.

"The Adams Theater is a work-in-progress," said Founding Executive and Artistic Director Yina Moore. "Over the past two years, the local communities have witnessed and supported our physical transformations as a building. This year, they will have the opportunity to participate in our programmatic development as an arts and performance venue that focuses on accessibility. We see this season as a collective learning and growing process between the Adams Theater, our artistic partners, and the local communities."

ACS Swat 16U Squad Tops Dalton in CRA Tourney

By Stephen DravisiBerkshires.com Sports
DALTON, Mass. – Rachael Wnuk hit a three-run double to help her team take a 9-0 lead, and the ACS Swat 16-year-old travel softball team earned a 12-7 win over Dalton on the first day of the 14th annual Dalton CRA Tournament.
 
Wnuk’s inside-the-park round tripper came in a six-run second inning for Adams-Cheshire-Savoy, which was able to survive with the win despite three-run rallies by the hosts in the third and fourth innings of the game that was stopped after five due to the tournament’s time rule.
 
“Huge hit,” ACS coach Lou Moser said. “I’ll tell you, I’ve coached that young lady since she was in coach-pitch division. She sees the ball very well. She’s become a really proficient hitter, going the opposite way when she knows she can.
 
“I’m super proud of that kid.”
 
It was a good evening all the way around for the ACS Swat program, which also saw its 12U team beat the Greylock Thunder, 7-2, in their tournament opener.
 
On Saturday morning, Dalton and the Berkshire Force have teams entered in the tournament’s 10U division. And the Thunder, Force and Swat all compete in the 12Us. The 16U age group features the Force, ACS Swat and Dalton. Semi-finals and finals for all three age groups are scheduled for Sunday starting at 8 a.m.
 
For the ACS 16s on Friday, Nora Kondel went 2-for-3 with a double and a pair of RBIs, Ava Cariddi was 2-for-2 with a couple of stolen bases, and Marlie Auger was 1-for-2 with a double and an RBI to help pace the ACS offense.
