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!

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

Talented actors, singers, dancers, directors, writers, stage crews, you name it and they have the people with the talent to make any performance a treat. A couple of things, because the theatre is small and performances almost always sell out, it is best to buy a package of tickets to make sure you always get a seat.If you have never... More

This is a very quaint, local theatre that is nestled into the pines off rte 6A. The theatre itself is small and intimate so there is a closer connection to the actors and the production overall. We attended a show earlier in the season that was very well done for a local repertory theatre group. I remember being in this... More

Well let's start with the theater. It was so nice and intimate, we went the day of the opening night,and had second row center. It was great! The play was funny and thought provoking. The actors were wonderful! I would go here again in a heartbeat!

Have seen several productions here and loved every one! The intimate theater provides wonderful sound and close up viewing of exceptional actors & actresses! The theater offers numerous plays each season for both adults and children at minimal expense for top notch performances!! A must attend!!!!
