Williamstown Theatre Festival

The quaint hamlet of Williamstown is where celebrities go to play; Oscar winners Gwyneth Paltrow and Marisa Tomei have graced the summer theater’s stage, for instance. Whether it’s offering Shakespeare or Stoppard, the Williams-town company, a local and national favorite, offers Broadway-caliber talent with performances at regional (affordable)
ticket prices.
