Description:

Cape Cod's favorite regional theater! Producing everything from new work...

Cape Cod's favorite regional theater! Producing everything from new work and classic musicals to outdoor children's shows. Come Find us.

Artists who wanted to develop a company dedicated to creativity and professionalism founded Cape Rep Theatre in 1986 and have worked hard to choose plays and musicals that continually challenge the artists who work here. We have two theatres on 7 acres of land in Nickerson State Park in Brewster: a 135-seat Indoor Theater and Cape Cod's only Outdoor Theatre, a 200-seat beauty. We produce a 5-play Indoor Theater season from May through December. During the summer, we use the Outdoor Theater for daytime children's shows and in the evening, we produce more mature fare "under the stars." We make a deliberate choice to bring in artists from outside our community to keep our vision broad, our company connected to the wider world and our productions as professional and creative as possible. We want to work with the best theater we can find. Often our choices are works that may not ordinarily be produced because we try not to let size of cast, degree of difficulty (or relative obscurity!) step in the way of choosing a show. And, most important, we have and will continue to produce new work. To all playwrights out there: we love producing new work!

A great evening out

Sophisticated theater experience in a lovely rural setting. Don't miss whatever they are producing if you are on the Cape.

Saw one play in June 2013, and it was terrific...sorry, I can't remember the name of the play. The ticket prices are reasonable, and the theatre company as well as the audience had a great time. I highly recommend..

Took our 4 kids (5 year old triplets and a 7 year old) to see KnuffleBunny, a children's play by Mo Willems as my kids love his writing and have all of his books. Beautiful outdoor theater located among towering trees. Performance was very entertaining and delighted the children and adults. We look forward to returning every summer!

The play was a musical and it was exceptional. Next to normal was the name of the play. You have to know where you are going to find this playhouse. You enter a dirt road and travel through the woods without any lighting, The road is bumpy and to find the actual playhouse it is a treasure hunt on it's... More

The indoor theater is mostly for adults, and the outdoor theater (summer) is for young children. We're year-round residents and have seen many productions in both theaters. The actors are always excellent and include local talent, as well as equity actors. You won't be disappointed!

My husband and I have had seasons' tickets for the Cape Rep for many years and we are never disappointed with the quality of the performances, from acting to stagecraft. Intimate little theatre... no bad seats in the house.

This theatre holds about 200 people and there are all good seats. You are very close to the actors and they were all very talented. It was a nice night out and very different. They have intermission with candy and drinks. We will be back!

Walk thru the old seacamp in the dusk and return to your car under starry skies. Carefully picked shows--new and old with superb actors, lighting, direction and management in a reconditioned building. The reconstruction has the same eye for perfection as the productions. Summer shows for children, outreach in the community. A real CapeCod gem.
