Theatre Facilities

Elements Theatre Company is nestled on the beautifully manicured grounds of the Church of the Transfiguration across from the Rock Harbor marina. The theater is located “off the beaten path” to the right of Bethany Guest House and just behind the gift shop. A relaxing outdoor patio and an indoor art gallery welcome and lead you to the spacious “black box” theater. Our comfortable and flexible space can be arranged to accommodate any type of play or musical. Plush seats are tiered up from the floor for intimate and unobstructed viewing.
The theater seats up to 150 people and is handicap accessible. Assisted listening devices are available. Elements Theatre Company operates year-round and offers group rates, dinner-theater packages, and educational retreats. For more information call the theater at 508-255-3999.

Walk the dunes to see the sun rise over the National Seashore. Wade in the bay at dusk and see the sun disappear into the ocean at the horizon. Enjoy birding, photography, golf, or tennis – all within a few miles of the town center. Cyclists can explore the area’s hidden gems along the Cape Cod Rail Trail.
