Performances are expected to include excerpts from shows from three of the five founding coalition members: the Academy of Performing Arts in Orleans; Cape Rep Theatre in Brewster, and Cape Cod Theatre Company, Home of the Harwich Junior Theatre. (The other two founders were Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater and Chatham Drama Guild.) Performers from the Cotuit center are also expected to take the stage.
