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!

We went to see "Hairspray" and enjoyed the performance very, very much. The seats were comfortable and in an arrangement that made for "not a bad one in the house." The acoustics were excellent, too; the performers were not individually mic'd yet it was easy to hear every word, whether spoken or sung. I usually give only positive comments, but... More

Show was astonishing. As good as pretty much anything I have ever seen on stage. If you get a chance to make it down to the Cape to see the incredible talent on stage in this delightfully small theater don't walk - run - to see it before this run ends.

We went to the Cape Rep Theatre for one of the summer children's shows with my 4 year old and 7 year old kids. The performers were very entertaining and had the whole audience laughing. The show was just long enough at an hour as the kids get a little antsy sitting for much more than that. To get there,... More

this theater put-on family shows during the morning from tue-thurs. We saw a marionette show. Our young children 5 and under really liked the show. It was geared to young children and they tried to make it interactive. Worth a visit

The first play of the 2016 season was "My Name is Asher Lev", it was extremely well done and very enjoyable. The second play was "Rough Crossing" which was only so-so. I think it is hard to perform and keep people's attention for 2 hours with a British slap-stick, it takes incredible talent. But I do really love the Cape... More

Went to see "Rough Crossing" last night and I am still laughing out loud. The cast was brilliant and the timing and jokes and physical comedy were all spot on. "Murphy" was hilarious and it was great to see Cleo on stage at the Cape Rep. I am sure that Art must gain five pounds per performance. Great music, well... More

We should have lingered for an after dinner drink at The Bramble Inn, where the food was outstanding. Sadly, we cut it short to make this play. What a mistake. We always feel bad giving such a poor recommendation, when we know how much effort goes into the production, but don't waste your time. It was our first bad experience... More

My wife and I saw a production of "My Name is Asher Lev" and I can tell you folks- it was a powerful performance. If this is an example of the the type of performance this place puts on, make it a mandatory stop on your to do list if you are down in or near Brewster, MA. All the... More

Spent an enjoyable evening watching Le Cage Thursday evening. The entire cast did a great job and we/the audience, I think, had an enjoyable evening. If there was a down side, I am 6'0 tall and found the leg room very cramped so please, i possible , ask for an aisle seat. Other than that you will, trust me, enjoy... More

While on the Cape we went to see MR BURNS, a play which cost us about 64.00 dollars, should have known that when we entered there was only about 40 people in attendance. I can not tell you how bad it was, no words to describe it. Needless to say before I would ever go back there I would research... More
