The Great Provincetown Summer – The Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum (PMPM) opens the 2016 season with “The Great Provincetown Summer – 1916,” commemorating the most pivotal time in the town’s history. The Summer of 1916 put Provincetown on the map as the largest and most influential art colony in the world and the birthplace of the modern American theater. The exhibition captures a snapshot in time and highlights four major schools of art: Charles W. Hawthorne, founder of the Cape Cod School of Art which gave rise to the Provincetown Art Colony; E. Ambrose Webster, modernist and another founder of the Provincetown Art Colony; George Elmer Browne, landscape painter and illustrator who founded the West End School of Art; B.J.O. Nordfeldt and William and Marguerite Zorach, founders of the Modernist School of Art. Also part of the exhibit, thinkers and writers including Susan Glaspell, Emma Goldman, John Reed and Eugene O’Neill who were all drawn to Provincetown to share and inspire each other. Visitors will experience some of their influences and understand the monumental significance of the summer of 1916. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum (PMPM), 1 High Pole Hill Rd, Provincetown.

“Bye Bye Birdie” – The year is 1958, and the much-adored rock-and-roll idol, Conrad Birdie, has been drafted into the US Army. His songwriter and agent, Albert, and Albert’s secretary and sometime girlfriend, Rosie, hatch a plan for a farewell performance to take place on The Ed Sullivan Show, which they hope will help sell Birdie’s new song “One Last Kiss,” and ultimately save Almaelou Records from going under. To cap off the performance, Birdie will actually give ‘one last kiss’ to Kim MacAfee, an avid member of the Conrad Birdie fan club from Sweet Apple, Ohio. When Albert and Rosie head to Sweet Apple to prepare for Birdie’s arrival, things start to unravel. Kim’s father is star-struck at the thought of being on The Ed Sullivan Show with his daughter, and Kim’s new steady, Hugo, gets jealous at the thought of Kim kissing Conrad on national television. Barnstable Comedy Club, 3171 Main Street, Barnstable. For more information, visit
