June is a great time to visit Provincetown. There is already so much going on. Here are some great events happening this month to entice you to come for a visit (if you haven’t already booked a stay). Quick! Get here before the kiddies get out of school!

Twenty Summers is wrapping up their 2017 season in a couple weeks.  Some of the events have sold out but there are still tickets available to see author David France and political commentator Andrew Sullivan (Friday, June 2), architects Peter Bohlin and William Rawn (Saturday, June 10) and poets Sharon Olds and Mark Doty (Saturday, June 10).  Such a spectacular setting.  Really—this place is a must-see.

Provincetown Theater has two events going on this month.  First up is Amadeus.  Starring Billy Hough, this Tony Award winning play by Peter Shaffer tells a highly fictionalized biography of the lives of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and his rival composer Antonio Salieri.  It is playing now through June 11.  Get your tickets soon!

Second: Presented by both Provincetown Theater and Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill is the 2017 Provincetown Dance Festival, June 23-24. Showcasing hip-hop, ballet, tap, contemporary, and classical Indian dance, this year’s event features Seattle’s Spectrum Dance Theater, with work by Tony Award nominee, Donald Byrd, Rachna Agrawal (Hartford), Rovaco Dance Company (New York City), Case Closed! (Providence), Portland Ballet (Portland, ME), Boston Tap Company and Tony Williams Ballet (Boston).

June 14-18 is the 2017 Provincetown Film Festival, one of the country’s best film festivals presenting an array of American and international narrative features, documentaires and short films.  In addition to the awesome line-up of independent films, some of this year’s guests include Sofia Coppola, Chloe Sevigny, John Waters, and Sebastian Junger, who will all be present for a different panel discussion.

And of course, Tea Dance season is…ON!  Can’t miss those SOLID GOLD SUNDAYS courtesy of Boatslip!
