The theatre itself is a icon in Chatham, surrounded by a beautiful walkway filled with summer flowers. The Ohio group performs there every summer. Its-was nice to see that the park attendant also had a part in the play! A very talented group of artist . The play was very entertaining!

Brighton Beach Memoirs performed by college students in this intimate local theater was a fabulous way of spending our last evening in Chatham. I'm so happy that we were able to get tickets!! Loved it!!

I did my research to determine which play house on mid-upper Cape to attend the theater during our recent trip to Orleans. Unfortunately this company did not do Shakespeare well, they had a very hard time with the language. This theater is quaint but the seats are so narrow and my knees were touching the seat in front of me,... More

Quaint theatre with pleasant staff and plenty of parking. More comfortable than some old theatres. They also run plays longer than most theatres on Cape. The only negative is that the seats are no stadium style so therefore if somebody tall or with big hair sits in front of you there could be a problem seeing.

We saw South Pacific on it's second evening. It was spectacular. The whole cast was college students except the male lead. A first rate performance, orchestra and a very clever set design. It goes to show local theater should not be missed!

The Monomoy is run by the University of Ohio and Hartford University and puts on well known plays and musicals the cast usually combines old time regulars with talented and aspiring new faces. The productions are highly professional, the repertory is great and the atmosphere is wonderful. And reasonably priced. It's a "shouldn't miss" for anyone staying in the area.

Part of the fun of going to Cape Cod is "summer theater". We have been going to Monomoy Theatre for the last several years, and it never fails to be fun. It is conveniently located near downtown Chatham, and reasonably priced. Last week we saw "Death Trap" which was well produced and well acted. A very pleasant summer evening, at a... More

The Monomoy has had a popular summer theater program for decades. It's associated with Ohio University's theater program, but the actors are not just from there. Their musicals tend to be especially good, with reliably imaginative choreography fitting a lot of action and performers onto a somewhat small stage, and some memorably good singers. The theater is small so there... More

We live in Chatham. We go to the Monomoy Theater two or three times each season. Very high quality productions and imaginative staging in a small venue.
