2024 Season

Details about the 2024 Season will be announced in the coming weeks!

The Plastic Bag Store

May 9 - September 2 | MASS MoCA's Building 1

MASS MoCA, in association with Williamstown Theatre Festival, presents:
The Plastic Bag Store
Created, written, designed, and directed by Robin Frohardt
Music by Freddi Price
Produced by Pomegranate Arts

A Tragicomic Ode to the Foreverness of Plastic.

The Plastic Bag Store is a public art installation and immersive film experience by Brooklyn-based artist Robin Frohardt that uses humor, craft, and a critical lens to question our culture of consumption and convenience — specifically, the enduring effects of single-use plastics. The shelves are stocked with thousands of original, hand-sculpted items — produce and meat, dry goods and toiletries, cakes and sushi rolls — all made from discarded, single-use plastics in an endless cacophony of packaging.

The Plastic Bag Store has an estimated run time of 60 minutes.


Discounts are available for MASS MoCA Members, kids ages 6-16, and Williamstown Theatre Festival donors. Donors, click here to contact us for your code.

COVID-19 Code of Courtesy

Properly fitting masks are encouraged to be worn indoors at the ‘62 Center for Theatre & Dance. Use of face masks is optional for all visitors at the Clark Art Institute. Visit for updated masking policies for A New Brain. Click here for a current list of all protocols.


All tickets are subject to a $5 processing fee per ticket. There only will be physical tickets for Hasan Minhaj: Experiment Time and Laura Benanti in Concert. Those tickets must be picked up at the will call window at the Box Office on the day of your performance. For all other shows this summer, check-in will take place by a list at the door at the theater entrance.

Exchange Policy

Tickets may be exchanged for the same production up to 48 hours prior to the performance you are unable to attend (subject to availability). A $3 per-ticket fee (waived for Donors at the $500 level and above) will be charged in addition to any applicable ticket upgrade costs. Refunds will not be made on exchanges into a lower-priced performance or seating area. We regret that we cannot seat a patron who has missed a previous performance.

Refund Policy

All sales are final. There are no refunds. Program, casting, and COVID-19 protocols are subject to change. If you find you are unable to use your tickets, please consider returning them to the Box Office prior to the performance to receive a tax-deductible receipt.


The ‘62 Center for Theatre & Dance is wheelchair accessible. Please request accessible seating when ordering tickets. A limited number of assistive listening devices are available for all performances on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information about WTF’s access programs, please call the Box Office at (413) 458-3253.


A limited number of AccessTix will be available for every Festival performance for $30. While there are no restrictions on who can purchase AccessTix, the purpose of this reduced price ticket program is to provide an entry-level price point for people who cannot otherwise afford to attend the Festival, so please consider this when making your ticket selection. AccessTix quantities are limited and availability may vary by production and performance. There is a limit of four AccessTix per performance per customer.

EBT & ConnectorCare Card to Culture

WTF is a proud participant in the state-wide Card to Culture initiative created by the Mass Cultural Council in partnership with the Executive Office of Health and Humans Services’ Department of Transitional Assistance, and the Massachusetts Health Connector, respectively. Anyone with a Massachusetts-issued EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer) card or ConnectorCare health insurance card may contact the Box Office via phone or in-person to purchase $20 tickets to performances on the Main Stage (tickets subject to availability; offer limited to two tickets per EBT or ConnectorCare card).
