A Berkshires Christmas: Festival of Trees and A Christmas Carol

December 12th, 2016 by Corey A. Edwards

Festival of Trees 2016 at the Berkshire MuseumFestival of Trees at the Berkshire Museum and Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” on stage at The Colonial Theatre are two great ways to enjoy the holiday season in the Bekrshires!

There’s always lots to do and see in the Berkshires and the holiday season is no exception. Bright lights, colorful decorations, special events, and holiday-themed stage shows set the scene for a magical time of the year.

One popular and traditional event is the annual Festival of Trees at the Berkshire Museum now through December 31st, 2016.

The Festival of Trees is a Christmas Tree decorating event that businesses, schools, and other groups participate. Each year, people compete to decorate their tree in innovative and original ways while also sticking to that year’s Festival of Trees theme.

This year’s theme is a salute to the silver screen. Currently, the Berkshire Museum exhibit contains over 100 trees decorated in celebration of classic cinema. You never know what you’ll see, the only guarantee is that you’ll be both entertained and bedazzled!

Another great Christmas tradition, Charles Dickens’ classic “A Christmas Carol” is on stage all month at the Colonial Theatre through the Berkshire Theatre Group.

A timeless holiday favorite, “A Christmas Carol” is a mesmerizing moral tale of the redemptive power of Christmas. Watch as the cold-hearted miser, Ebenezer Scrooge, is given one last chance to reform by four very different spirits.

This classic story of redemption is filled with holiday carols and will hold you entranced in your seat no matter how well you know the story. Berkshire Theatre Group shows are of the highest production values, drawing talent from across the region. It’s highly likely you’ve never seen “A Christmas Carol” like this!
