Provincetown Theater Launches Free Virtual Programming of Productions

Heeding Gov. Baker's stay-at-home policy to combat Covid-19 in Massachusetts, on April 9, 2020 the Provincetown Theater on Outer Cape Cod will begin streaming a roster of performances free-of-charge to its subscribers, patrons, and all those interested in keeping the performing arts alive and well during these tumultuous times.

"Telling our stories is central to developing connection, compassion, meaning and healing for any community - especially during a time of crisis." says artistic director David Drake. "And right now, that's what our mission at the Provincetown Theater is all about."

The Theater's two-month virtual programming from April 9 thru May 26 includes:

  • Four major productions from the Provincetown Theater archives.

  • -A live stream of the monthly local story slam, The Mosquito.

  • -A series of live-streamed "Community Conversations" with civic leaders and concerned citizens in discussion about issues and themes emerging from specific productions streamed online.

Although donations are greatly appreciated to help the Provincetown Theater stay on course to re-open when authorities deem safe, all virtual programming this spring will be streamed free-of-charge on the Provincetown Theater website. For performance times and details, please visit:
