After a 16-month hiatus, we’re thrilled to announce that the Provincetown Theater will joining the legion of theatrical troupes across the country in producing live, in-person productions this summer. And we’re doing so as safely, responsively and surprisingly as we can — with a roster of 3 full-fledged productions in our backyard at 238 Bradford Street in our outdoor Playhouse in the Parking Lot!

The PTF provides performance and educational space for theatrical artists within the Outer Cape Cod community and beyond.
