WHAT Celebrates 25 Years of Great Theater

This week the Wellfleet Harbor Actors' Theater celebrates its 25th anniversary and kudos are in order. WHAT grew from small beginnings, in a ramshackle venue on the harbor, to the impressive edgy-drama machine we know today, operating several summer shows at once to the delight of local playwrights, and offering a variety of other types of entertainment at several locations. The main stage is now located in the impressive new building beside the post office, pictured above. Over the past winter, 92nd Street Y programs and opera at the Met were broadcast live on the big screen. This April, Outer Cape residents can enjoy independent films, which we might not be able to view otherwise: Frozen River, Rachel Getting Married, Wendy and Lucy, Happy Go Lucky. How fortunate we are! How wonderful for Wellfleet to have a top-notch theater, capable of drawing actors from Broadway to star in summer shows! Thank you, Jeff Zinn & Company!
