The Fantasticks Musical

Mondays - Thursdays July 10 - August 31

The East Coast premiere of a newly re-imagined adaptation of Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt’s landmark musical, The Fantasticks. While retaining the show’s timelessly romantic score (“Soon It’s Gonna Rain,” “I Can See It,” “Try to Remember…”), librettist Tom

Jones has revised his original script of The Fantasticks to find the young lovers Matt and Luisa have become -- Matt and Lewis! Moreover, they aren’t being pushed into each other’s arms by their prankster, gardening fathers, but rather by their prankster, gardening mothers! With fresh twists on all the characters, the summer-long run of The Fantasticks in Provincetown – in an adaptation that debuted in 2022 at the Flint Repertory Theatre in Michigan -- is a musical theater event not to be missed.


The Gale:
Beware the Siren's Song

Thursdays - Sundays in October 2023

Come aboard the fishing schooner Leviathan and experience the Gale of 1841. Immerse yourself in her fateful voyage. Can you survive? Hold fast through the

storm or be doomed by the Siren's Song! An immersive Haunted House produced by the Provincetown Theater - where you can live through real Provincetown history, and get your Halloween spook on!

What the Constitution Means to Me

Thursday - Sundays November 16 - December 3

Heidi Schreck’s Obie Award-winning play, What the Constitution Means to Me, receives its Cape Cod premiere. Drawn from the playwright’s own lifelong passion for the majesty and mystery of the U.S. Constitution, the play follows the story of how its young author used her intellectual embrace of our country’s mightiest living document to win college scholarships at Constitutional debate contests. In the

process, Schreck unpacks an unexpected personal-is-political journey that’s empowering, haunting, funny, and full of hope.

Casa Valentina

Closed. Thanks to all who attended our first show of the season!

Opening the 2023 season will be the Cape Cod premiere of Harvey Fierstein’s Casa Valentina, the latest provocative and hilarious Broadway play written by the Tony Award-winning icon.

Casa Valentina is Harvey Fierstein's (Kinky Boots, Newsies, La Cage aux Folles) first play in over thirty years.


With a premise inspired by the true story of a mid-century sanctuary in the Catskills where men dressed as women, Casa Valentina reveals the crossroads of

gender identity, sexual orientation, and the significance of compassion and community via a

group of strangers whose lives are forever changed during a single weekend at the mountain resort of “Casa Valentina” in the summer of 1962.
