PITTSFIELD, Mass. — It might be nearly 90 degrees outside, but inside the Shire City Sanctuary this week, it's going to seem downright chilly.

That's because the Kickwheel Ensemble Theater (the creative arm of The Berkshire Fringe) is staging an original work called "Passage," which weaves together two parallel story lines of survival: the tale of Sir John Franklin's doomed 19th expedition to conquer the famed Northwest Passage and the story of a modern-day couple on a luxury wellness cruise through the now-melting Arctic.

In a news release, Kickball describes "Passage" as "a dark comedy exploring themes of a changing climate, love and

"Ghostbusters," the third film in the franchise originated by Aykroyd, Ramis and Reitman in 1984, reboots the saga of paranormal booga booga with four funny ladies starring in what is essentially a séance gone wild. Asserting that anything the male Ghostbusters could do, they can do wackier, it is a movie of moments and ideas, most of them witty, some of them hilarious.

Last year, the day was so hot and sunny. I even enjoyed getting my blood pressure taken by Berkshire Health Systems because I could go into a cool trailer for a few minutes. They gave me a nice, blue tote bag as a memento and to carry around my day's stuff in.

The weather is predicted to be in the mid-80s with sun and clouds for this afternoon of barbecue and other homemade foods, a basketball tournament, a stage with live music and vendors like Grampy's Dog House
