We are very fortunate that the Old Manse Inn is just a few miles down the road from The Cape Rep Theater. When we first bought the inn we found very little time to enjoy the arts but now we make a point to do just that. The latest play we enjoyed was Anna Christie written by Eugene O’Neill. The play starred Ashlea Potts who passionately captures the lead character. Ashlea has been with the Cape Rep for several years in between living here and in NY. We first came to meet Ashlea when her parents started staying with us. They have become more like family than inn guests.
Cape Rep Theater was founded in 1986. It wasn’t until 1991 that the Cape Rep leased the property where it now from the state who purchased it from the former Camp Monomoy and began to rehabilitate several former camp buildings into a performing arts center. They have an indoor theater, and outdoor theater and recently renovated the Cape House which now houses employees and artists. They have done an amazing job.
Cape Cod offers 22 theaters between Falmouth and Provincetown. All offering first class and diverse productions. Broadway musicals to cabaret, even children’s theater.
Rich and I are looking forward to the current season at Cape Rep and hoping to venture out to other theaters in our neighboring Cape Cod towns.
