The Cape & Islands Theater Coalition is pleased to announce that the Barnstable Comedy Club has joined the Coalition, becoming its 26th member. Despite its name, the BCC is actually a community theater, with a big emphasis on the word ‘community.’  In general they perform four main productions per season, as well as other special events such as The Annual Barnstable Village Holiday Stroll, staged readings, and acting and directing workshops. The Barnstable Comedy Club (BCC), located on Route 6A in Barnstable Village, was established in 1922 and is the oldest community theater on Cape Cod. You can learn more about BCC by visiting their website at:  www.barnstablecomedyclub.org, and be sure to order your tickets for The King and I opening November 6.

The King and I Written by Rodgers & Hammerstein East versus West makes for a dramatic, richly textured and ultimately uplifting tale of amorous fascination. Director – Susan Lindholm Music Director – Geraldine Boles November 6-23, 2014

The Kitchen Witches by Caroline Smith If you can’t stand the laughter, then get out of the kitchen! Directed Christy Morris January  8-25, 2015

The Housekeeper by James Prideaux This offbeat, delightfully zany comedy deals with the unlikely involvement which develops between a middle-aged, rather stuffy bachelor and the eccentric bag lady he hires as a housekeeper. Directed by Marti Baker March 12-29, 2015

Ravenscroft by Don Nigro This psychological drama is a thinking person’s Gothic thriller, a dark comedy that is both funny and frightening. Directed by Theresa D. Cedrone May 7-24, 2015


Season Highlights Theater Celebration Was A HIT!

Over 100 people gathered Monday night, October 6th at Cotuit Center for the Arts to celebrate and support our wonderful Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket live nonprofit theaters.

The evening featured songs from The Fantastiks, 33 Variations, A Little Night Music, the Wizard of Oz, Jekyll & Hyde, Grey Gardens and Young Frankenstein with performances from Cotuit Center for the Arts, Falmouth Theater Guild, Harwich Junior Theater, Eventide Arts (Dennis) and Chatham Drama Guild.

The casual evening also featured a catered reception,  and a drawing for theater tickets from 24 theaters and signed Pops by the Sea lithographs by artist Elizabeth Mumford, who also pulled the winning tickets.

The drawing included lobster roll lunches with theater directors Mark Cuddy (The Cape Playhouse), Jeffry George (WHAT), Jef Hall-Flavin (Tennessee Williams Theater Festival), Nina Schuessler (Harwich Junior Theater), and MJ Munafo Bruder (Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse).  Other great prizes were wine, gift certificates to the Cape Abilities Farm in Dennis, all event passes to the National Theater on Ice Competition being held in Hyannis in June, 2015 Pops by the Sea Tickets, and other items donated by the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod which also donated the Elizabeth Mumford prints.
