Looking for a creative and hilarious evening of comedy? Accidentally on Purpose Comedy Improv Troupe will improvise a laughter-filled night at CinemaSalem.
The unique AOP style is similar to the hit TV show Whose Line Is It Anyway? and is complete with audience interaction! Come and be prepared to offer suggestions for the group, then sit back and watch the laughter and madness ensue as the troupe puts your suggestions to work in hilarious improvisational scenes.
Audience members contribute ideas and suggestions to the troupe, and (only if they desire) can also join the comedians onstage to participate. The results are unpredictable, timely, high-risk, and often brilliant!
Altar Boyz, winner of an Outer Critics Circle Award, comes to the Cape Playhouse after a five-year run off-Broadway. The musical tells the wholly — make that holy — inspiring story of five small-town boys (Matthew, Mark, Luke, Juan, and Abraham) trying to save the world one screaming fan at a time. Their pious pop act, including lyrics like "Girl, you make me wanna wait" and "Jesus called me on my cell phone," worked wonders on the Ohio bingo-hall-and-pancake-breakfast circuit. But when fate brings them to New York, will the Boyz take a bite out of the forbidden apple? With angelic voices, sinfully spectacular dancing, and a touching story, Altar Boyz is destined to rock the masses!

Up until now, he's been able to wriggle out of the messes he gets himself into, but how will he survive a whole year under a teacher who is just waiting for him to make another stupid mistake?

Worlds collide and sisters square off in this keenly observed comedy about ambition, regret, and the choices that shape who we become.

Through adulthood, as the list grows, she learns the deep significance it holds in her own life. It stays with her as she goes to college, falls in love, and builds a home. A tribute to the irrepressible resilience inside all of us and the capacity to find delight in the everyday, Every Brilliant Thing is a charming new play that enlists members of the audience to help tell its story.

Mistaken identities, courtly intrigue, and backstage bickering are all part of the fun in this romantic comedy of errors.
