Provincetown Theater Foundation
The Provincetown Theater…..Building on the legacy.
Long considered to be the birthplace of modern American theater, Provincetown is where Eugene O’Neill and Susan Glaspell formed the original Provincetown Players in 1916. Throughout the 20th century, Tennessee Williams and countless other playwrights, actors and directors have realized their talents here on the outermost tip of Cape Cod.
Formed from a merger of two existing companies, The Provincetown Theater is forging a distinguished new identity using the best elements of professional and community theater to create its current and future seasons.
Our mission is to:
- sponsor new play development and produce plays by American artists
- present professional and non-professional productions
- provide educational and training opportunities for youth and adults
- and maintain the Provincetown Theater as a performing arts venue for the Cape Cod community
A new, state-of-the-art Theater in Provincetown is a dream realized.
The Provincetown Theater is presenting quality performances year-round – comedy, drama and musicals and original new works by classic and contemporary American playwrights, workshops, readings and more.
