outdoor Chatham Shakespeare festival, musical Errico

Kate Gould Park in the center of Chatham is traditionally filled on summer Fridays with music lovers for the town band concert, so a new group (that includes familiar faces to Chatham) hopes the crowds will also sit outdoors for evenings of theater.

“Bring thou thy blankets and thy beach chairs!” invites a poster for the inaugural year of the Cape Cod Shakespeare Festival in Chatham. For more on what you can see and how the new festival is an extension of the former Monomoy Theatre, see below.
