I have been seeing shows at the Monomoy for many years . . . each show is designed to teach the students about all aspects of theater while entertain audiences of all interests and ages. Each summer they produce 8 shows -- generally two musicals, one farce, a mystery/thriller (think Agatha Christie), drama, comedy . . and always a Shakespeare!... More

My friends and I saw the Drowsy Chaperone at the Monomoy Theatre. The show was very entertaining and well executed. Great singing and dancing. The theatre itself is old , but has tons of character. Truly an enjoyable evening!

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... More

I wouldn't go back here. There are so many lovely theaters on Cape and Monomoy really wasn't that great compared to productions I have seen at Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theatre, Cape Rep and Cape Playhouse. The ticket prices were expensive for the low quality theater

The production was college quality (by college students, I believe), and too tongue in cheek with references to Chatham. Not sure the Bard would love it. However, there was lots of enthusiasm and Puck was the highlight. We would definitely attend again, but stick to something easier to understand. This was our second "never did it before" attraction, and we... More

Have been going to the Cape for years but never went to a production at the Monomoy until this year...am very glad we finally got there! The production level was excellent...the talent from Hartford is exceptional. The theater itself is quaint and cozy inside, but it is nicely air conditioned and comfortable. I can't say that there would be a... More

Monomoy Theatre has always been a Cape destination for my family since my mother performed there as a graduate student over 35 years ago. This theater seldom disappoints. The setting is quaint and intimate, the performances professional level! If you're looking for an evening with some history and entertainment, check this place out in the summer. Additionally, congrats to the... More

Monomoy is an ideal summer theater: sponsored by the graduate theater program at the University of Hartford, the young actors put on eight shows in eight weeks. This year's company is excellent. We saw the backstage farce "Lend Me a Tenor" last week and the cast was firing on all cylinders (kudos to guest director Francesca James). Rollicking and hilarious.... More

Saw Ken Ludwig`s, "Lend Me A Tenor." Always a great show, wonderful acting. It's inspiring to see young actors perform their art with vitality and passion. This theater is a true gem of Cape Cod summer theater.

We didn't expect it, The performance and venue was so extraordinary that we are buying more 2015 shows. Professional singing and acting throughout. Two actors equity professionals in key roles. College students from Hartford University looking for career opportunities. If additional performances are as good, we will buy a season pass in 2016. This was a great experience ... highly... More
