Directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt, performances are scheduled to continue through July 31 at BSC Stage 2 (36 Linden Street, Pittsfield).

The cast features Taylor Trensch, Stanley Bahorek, Jill Abramovitz and Adam Monley.

Mormons, Mothers and Monsters is written by Mormon-reared librettist/lyricist Salmond. In the musical, according to Barrington notes, "a Mormon boy and his mother smile their way through three shattering divorces. As he grows, the boy hides under his bed-sheets, prays fervently and tries to figure out just who is responsible for his crappy, crappy life."

The production also features sets by Brian Prather, costumes by Paloma Young, lighting by Grant Yeager, sound by Ryan Peavey and music direction by Vadim Feichtner. Shakina Nayfack is the Drama League Directing Fellow; Rose Marie Packer is production stage manager.

Show times are Tuesday-Friday at 7:30 PM, Saturday at 4 PM and 8 PM and Sunday at 3 PM.

Tickets are $15-$39 (all seats reserved) by calling (413) 236-8888, at the Barrington Stage box office (30 Union Street), or online at www.barringtonstageco.org.
