Mission and Values

Our Mission and Values


Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater is a not-for-profit professional theater company dedicated to enriching the cultural life of the Outer Cape through plays and innovative programming that entertains, inspires, and informs a multi-generational audience.


We are a community of theater makers who strive for artistic excellence and seek creative risks.

We believe in the value of the shared communal experience that live theater provides to stimulate curiosity and engage communities, recognizing the legacy of storytelling and its role in shaping society.

We nurture emerging artists, allowing them to hone their craft in a supportive environment, while actively serving young audiences, providing both with the opportunity to experience the power of live theater.

We serve a diverse audience, and seek to provide programming that reflects varied experiences and perspectives.


  • Summer Theater Season, featuring productions performed on the Julie Harris Stage between May and October.
  • Summer Youth and Family programming performed outdoors in a casual environment.
  • Off Season, community-oriented programming, often produced in partnership with other local not-for-profit organizations, serving local interests and needs.
  • Professional Development Internship Program, hands-on training and performance opportunities for emerging young theater-makers.
