Owner description: 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!

The small theater is wonderful, the actors were terrific, but we weren't sold on this particular play. However, we would certainly go again.

This is the other theatre "that could" like WHAT in Wellfleet used to be. Regulars bring new plays to try out, occasional old chestnuts, always high production values and strong casts.

This is a great little local theater situated in the old Camp Monomoy Dining Hall. You would think it was built for this theater. All the seats are comfortable and very close to the stage so the experience is much more intimate that your large theaters. They generally combine local talent with equity actors and the result is fun. You can loose yourself to the experience and have fun. Early in the year when it is light out, you can enjoy an early walk through the old campsite and visit their outdoor theater. The outdoor theater was originally the Robert J Delahanty Memorial Chapel having been built for the founder of the camps. This is a local theater that is well worth supporting.

Although we were disappointed in the play we saw I would highly recommend this little theater gem. Acting was very good, scenery and acoustics good, and the building itself charming. We happened on "Bye, Bye Mary Rose" a rather amateurish play with no clear direction or theme. I feel sure their other offerings are good judging from the attendance of the locals and the4 caliber of the acting. I would give it a try again.
