Jealousy, lust, revenge, redemption and, yes, a good dose of romance and comedy, make The Winter's Tale one of Shakespeare's most beloved works. 

Set in the enchanted lands of Sicilia and Bohemia, this fully staged gorgeous Payomet production weaves deep pathos into a story of warring kings, powerful women, families torn apart by suspicion... and the eternal rebirth of hope.

If you see just one play this summer, then make it this rarely staged epic performed by one of the most exciting and brilliant young casts ever assembled on Cape Cod.

Shemekia Copeland
- Soul/blues diva and her phenomenal band.

Blues queen Shemekia Copeland rocked the Congregational Church in Wellfleet to its foundation last February, and we’re bringing her back for one of our biggest dates this summer, August 7th, marking the 50th anniversary of the Cape Cod National Seashore. Shemekia released her debut album at 19 and was met with unanimous and hearty praise from the likes of the Boston Globe, who declared that

“she roars with a sizzling hot intensity,”

and the Village Voice, who lauded her as “nothing short of uncanny.” Since then she has risen steadily in the echelons of the blues, opening for the Rolling Stones, starring in the Chicago Blues Festival, and playing alongside B.B. King, Taj Mahal and Buddy Guy. With a voice that harkens back to Ella Fitzgerald and Etta James, Shemekia Copeland has soul to burn.
