Live Theater Performances

Question: Will the Cape Playhouse be showing the murder mystery between June 1 and June 6, 2015? If not, what will be playing? We love to see shows or concerts while on vacation.

Dee's Reply: Hi Rebecca - Cape Playhouse hasn't posted its 2015 season schedule yet, so I'm not sure exactly when their opening performance will be.

If memory serves, I believe the Playhouse's summer season usually opens around the second week in June. So I'm afraid your vacation might be just a teensy bit too early to catch a performance there.

But, just to be sure, I've put in a call to the Playhouse and left a message asking someone to get back to me about the 2015 schedule. As soon as I have any more info, I'll post an update here.

In the mean time, I have another suggestion for you ...

Harwich Junior Theater's production of "The Great American Trailer Park Musical" opens May 15 and runs through June 14, 2015.

(Note: Although it's named Harwich Junior Theater, they have productions for adults, too. This one is rated PG-13.)

I read about this musical when it made its Off-Broadway debut some years ago. Billed as "incredibly irreverant, hilarious, and raucous", this show sounds like just my style!

HJT does such a top-notch job with all their productions, I'm really looking forward to seeing this one in May. Oddly enough, so is my hubby who, to put it mildly, isn't a huge fan of live theater. Imagine my surprise when he volunteered to make it a date night and go with me. ;-)

Harwich Junior Theater
105 Division Street
West Harwich, MA 02671
(508) 432-2002

Anyway ... I'll keep you posted on what I find out about Cape Playhouse's upcoming season.

Until then, you might want to have a look at Cape & Islands Theater Coalition's website. It's a great resource for all sorts of information about live theater on Cape Cod and the nearby islands of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket.

Best Regards,
