Historic Preservation of the Cape Rep Theatre
Creativity and professionalism coalesce at the Cape Rep Theatre, which was founded in 1986. This local production company features several nomadic early years before finding a place to call home at the former Camp Monomoy. Developing former camp buildings into a performing arts center was an initial task. And now, the campus features an indoor theater, outdoor theater, Cape House, and Barn.
The indoor theater was actually constructed in 1959 and used as a dining hall by the original camp. Opened into a 129-seat intimate venue, the space was expanded to feature an outdoor theater as well. This performance space is ideal for summer shows and featured some terrific performances, from Shakespeare to Agatha Christie. Portions of the Cape House then date back to 1790, though it was modernized in the late 19th century. Now, it houses employees and artists and is a preserved historic structure for future generations to enjoy. The Barn is the building visitors pass en route to the indoor theater. Built in the late 19th century, it was originally used for camp arts and crafts. Now, it serves as a smaller, unique special events space.
