Our 2018 ensemble will get the opportunity to live in Provincetown, MA – a historically vibrant beach vacation community and perform in professional quality productions. Housing is provided in lieu of monetary compensation to those not local to Cape Cod. Once the season is open an ensemble member’s only requirement will be HAIR, 4 nights a week. There are plenty of part-time jobs that pay very well in our summer community and we will assist in helping you find something to do during your free time if needed. Ensemble members who have local housing will be given a small stipend based on the role.
