About
The Monomoy Theatre is supported by the remarkable Chatham and Cape community as well as the University of Hartford and The Friends of Monomoy Theatre. Unlike so many summer theaters where the students serve as apprentices with the task of supporting professional designers, technicians and performers, the Monomoy Theatre is a student driven operation. We engage professional theatre artists to serve, in a very real way, as teachers, mentors and examples for the students to follow and from whom the students can learn. In twelve weeks, eight shows ranging from hit musicals to Shakespeare are designed, rehearsed, built and performed. It's a fast-paced, enriching and extraordinary creative environment that provides a challenging and rewarding artistic experience to these talented young artists as well as our audiences. The Monomoy Theatre has launched many successful careers and offers a theatrical experience you are unlikely to find anywhere else in the country. Visit us this summer!

My husband and I stumbled across the Monomoy Theater during our stay in Chatham in June 2005. We parked at the theater and walked down Main Street to The Captain's Table for dinner before making our way back for the performance. We saw "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying". We thoroughly enjoyed the play. The theater is fairly small with a great home town feeling. I highly recommend getting tickets early. We will try to make this a part of our summer trip to the Cape every year!

If you are headed to Chatham, try to get tickets for a show at Monomoy Theatre. We loved the production of Guys and Dolls. Monomy really puts on big productions that come very close to what you see on Broadway (the sets are a bit simpler and the orchestra a bit smaller but the talent is fairly equal). The Town of Chatham obviously has some very fine people who are proud to have created the town as the Cape's Mecca for Culture and "The Arts." The wonderful ensemble of performers truly make the most of every scene that they are part of... dance moves were crisp, harmonies were perfect.... so many hours of practice must go into every minute of stage time. And as for the Chatham citizens who support this playhouse, we were befriended by a lovely couple who guided us to understand the workings of the theatre, guided us to enjoy the intermission in the courtyard, and told us wonderful stories of famous actors and actresses who frequented this cultural hub. These folks truly love their theatre and want to share it with visitors. (Thank you Nancy). This was a great experience and it easily deserves 5 Stars.

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 are no bad seats. The customer service is top notch. The lobby area is small and crowded but it's summer so most people mill around outdoors before the show and during intermission.

We had the most enjoyable evening. We attended the opening night of the 2016 summer season. We saw the Drowsy Chaperone. It was fantastic!!!!!! The cast was just so enjoyable to watch. The "man in the chair" was delightful. He brought the show to life. literally. I am so glad that we went to see it. If you are traveling to Chatham I would definitely recommend seeing a show at the Monomoy.

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 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.

Super comfortable seats. You can order tasty food and enjoy it while watching the movie. And we loved the incredible mural in the lobby.

We have been fortunate enough to have season tickets to Monomoy for several years now and it s one of our favorite summer activities. We particularly enjoy the musicals, but all the shows are great. The actors demonstrate wonderful talent and the costumes, makeup and sets are all top notch as well.

We were in Chatham for their Fourth of July activities and decided to go see 1776, the Musical. We bought the last 2 tickets that night and I was worried the seats wouldn't be that great. I should have remembered that there are no bad seats. The show was superb! The acting brought you back to those historical days when the various patriots penned the Declaration of Independence. You really felt you were there in the gallery watching the whole process. The music was great too. We thoroughly enjoyed it!!
Over the years we have seen many productions at Monomoy and have never been disappointed. This summer's line up includes Cabaret and Wait Until Dark. Wish I could see those. Actually, I wish I lived in Chatham so I could be a season ticket holder!

We were fortunate to get tickets for the first night performance of "1776" the musical. Very entertaining with great acting and singing from a mainly amateur cast. AS visitors to USA it was also very educational.
