Tonight’s the Night for Our Townie Variety Show!

In our determination to stay connected to the audiences we love by creating new virtual programming, tonight we’re thrilled to bring you a very special and unique live-streaming event in Our Townie Variety Show.

Featuring over a dozen entertainers – plus a dozen+ “greetings” from beloved P’town performers (sending their their best to you from around the world!) — we know you’ll enjoy meeting up with some of your favorites from the Provincetown Theater. Furthermore, true to the depth of each talent who contributed, the depth of their character speaks to their commitment to keeping the performing arts on the Outer Cape alive and well and moving forward — as each generously donated their time and talent to tonight’s show.

A “one night only” special event (yes, there will be only one broadcast of this show), we hope you’ll tune into Our Townie Variety Show this evening (May 24) at 7pm via the link below. And while streaming free-of-charge like all of our virtual productions, we also hope you’ll consider making a donation in order to help the Provincetown Theater steady our course through these most challenging times. Wishing you a safe, loving, and healthy Memorial Day.

Our Townie Variety Show!

Meeting the joy, honor and celebration that Memorial Day Weekend has traditionally meant for so many Americans ain’t an easy task in these anxious and isolated times. But we at the Provincetown Theater are determined to pioneer our way forward, grabbing hold of all those emotions associated with the gateway to summer, and putting them in a show!

That’s right, on Sunday, May 24 at 7pm we’re free-streaming our season kick-off with Our Townie Variety Show. Featuring a wide range of major Outer Cape talent, join host David Drake along with a roster of talent that includes not only sensational singers, but also classical musicians & tap dancers, pianist John Thomas, accordionist Terri Conti, flutist Eric Maul, rock-n-roller Anne Stott, ukulele dude Benwa Kramer & more!

PLUS tune in for a reunion of the stars of last summer’s Sweeney Todd – with songs from the glorious voices of Trish LaRose (above, right), Megan Amorese, Christopher Sidoli, Madison Mayer (above, left), and that Demon Barber of Fleet Street himself, Broadway’s Tom Hewitt (above, center).

While we’ll be streaming Our Townie Variety Show free-of-charge, please know that this very special production is being produced as a benefit show to help us shore up the kind of support our theater will need to survive the next phases of the pandemic. Our goal, of course, is to get through this time of darkness, see the light at the end of the tunnel, and put that light back where it belongs – downstage center at the Provincetown Theater.

So, set your calendar for Sun, May 24 at 7pm to join in with your friends and loved ones for Our Townie Variety Show!

Community Conversations: Staying Centered

Next up, our bi-weekly civic dialogue series “Community Conversations” streams live on Tuesday, May 12 at 4pm. This week, our board president David Wilson moderates a panel of Outer Cape creative folk on the significance (and ways!) of staying calm and centered during this time of isolation and anxiety. We’re proud to welcome to the discussion the poet and performer Tamora Israel (from The Laramie Project), baker and owner of Relish Frank Vasello, yoga instructor from Yoga Ptown Chase Hiffernan, and the director of the Provincetown Public Library Amy Raff.

Free of charge, and brought to you in part by a generous grant from Cape Cod 5, click on the link below to participate in what promises to be another lively and nurturing 45 minutes of “Community Conversations.”

Happy Mama Mosquito!

Mark your calendar for Mother’s Day Weekend when The Mosquito Story Slam returns online with the theme “Your Mother!” After the exciting success of last month’s debut of the virtual Mosquito on our website, vivacious co-hosts Vanessa Vartadebian and William Mullin return with another live round of local and national storytellers in our free-of-charge evening on Sat, May 9 starting at 7pm.

As always, prompts will be read throughout the hour-long show. Per May’s theme, the prompt asks audience members: Tell us something your mother would say! In order to have your response read live on the show, please email it to themosquito@gmail.com by Saturday, May 9.
