The 4th of July is one week from today. We are cooking with gas this summer season! Dirty Rotten Scoundrels has already broken our box office records, and with just 4 more performances, you still have a chance to catch the hilarious antics. Christine Rathbun-Ernst kicks off July's Black Box season with the Fat Ass Cancer Bitch Goes Shopping, our cast and crew of Cabaret are in full rehearsal mode, and once again our friends at Theater Under the Stairs are bringing to life a new family production, "Frog" to run in August in the mornings, so you can bring the kids then head to the beach. July is also packed with special events including concerts by Stephanie Weaver; Managing Director of the Cape Cod Conservatory, Blues legend George Gritzbach, our second annual "1960's Happening" featuring Groovy Afternoon, a film screening and live stand up performance by perennial favorite Jimmy Tingle, great chamber music in the gallery with the Meetinghouse Chamber Festival and of course, the piece de resistance, ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT!, the Cape Cod party of the year.
The galleries are chock full of incredible artwork including Jon Friedmans' remarkable show, our community artists in the "Portraits" juried exhibit and two very special sculpture installations by Gary Urgonski and Tom O'Connell.
Our summer educational programs are beginning and there is usually room for another student or two, and we are busier than ever bringing as much culture as we can to our community.
One of the coolest events of the Summer is the July 14 "Trip in' Time Happening."
Please take a minute to scroll down and look at all the great stuff.
