Danny Dollar, Millionaire Extraordinaire, a presentation of the Berkshire Theatre Group Education Program, has been delighting audiences of all ages with its intensely original story, upbeat message, and uncompromising production values.
This offering within the 10X10 Festival is a double whammy of sorts, being based on the story by local author Ty Allan Jackson. Danny’s just an ordinary kid, who happens to have multiple odd jobs, visits the bank every week to deposit his earnings, and aspires to be a millionaire!
We speak with director Travis G. Daly about the story, the staging and about Berkshire Theatre Group’s education program and community theatre mission.
