We went to see Legally Blonde last night, the next to last performance of this show this season. It's a very small theater (162 seats) so you're right on top of the action. Although these are amateur performers, they do a great job playing multiple...More

This is one of the reasons why we drive seven hours to spend three weeks at Cape Cod! Such a fun evening out at an intimate theatre. We saw Spamalot and enjoyed it very much. Look forward to next summer!

The amateur actors are fantastic and the Director, Peter Earle, makes every play a winner. The venue mainly does Broadway and Off Broadway shows from the past, but they are always well=performed and delightful to watch.

Local players perform to musicals and other mainstream productions in small quarters and limited staging. The enthusiasm of the players make up for any shortcomings in the equipment. Always a fun venue at a reasonable or lower price. Great children shows in the summer.

SPAMOLOT was the show we saw, and it was great. The theater is sort of in-the-round - the seats surround the floor and small stage on three sides. Very good for viewing - close and intimate environment. Comfortable seats. Seats 160+ people. The cast was...More

I come to the Cape every summer, and I go to see the Academy players every summer. I have enjoyed every performance. They do an amazing job for an amateur group. The theater is comfortable although it is not handicap accessible because it is on...More
