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!

This week I saw Lyle, the Crocodile with my 4 year old. The 50 minute show was great - story line, acting, theatre. The actors all signed autographs for the kids and took pictures after the show. I will be back next summer. Although the outdoor theatre is mainly shaded, there are spots that are sunny so make sure you... More

We took our two children here on a drizzly Cape day. We saw Lyle, The Crocodile. The show was an hour long (a perfect amount of time), $10 per ticket (such a great price!), comfortable seating. This was such a hidden gem!

We went to see Lyle the Crocodile with our 8 year old son. We sat in the beautiful outdoor theater. To be honest, I wasn't expecting much of a stage and I was pleasantly surprised to see the set up. I was also thankful for the seats having backs - I planned on just a bench. The music and acting... More

For a community theater this place is amazing. The acting and sets are excellent. Most of what they do are plays I have never heard of, but are very good choices and extremely well done. The theater is small so get tickets early, you won't be disappointed. We have been season subscribers for years and will continue to be. Having... More

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!
