Against a tradition of impromptu theater spaces, a purpose-built playhouse opened in June 2004 in the reconstructed Provincetown Mechanics garage (formerly Cape End Motors). It is now the 130-to-145-seat Provincetown Theater. It was developed by the Provincetown Theater Foundation as a home for the Provincetown Theatre Company (founded 1963) and the Provincetown Repertory Theatre (founded 1995), and designed by Brown Lindquist Fenuccio & Raber of Yarmouthport.
The early years saw successes, clashes, mergers, schisms, departures and deficits. But the 2010 season dawned with a well-received revival of Our Town, directed by David Drake. The Stage Manager was played by Beau Jackett, whose father was in the cast of the previous Our Town revival — 40 years earlier.
