Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement
The Barnstable Comedy Club is an all-volunteer community driven theater, MA 501(3)(c) nonprofit organization. As such, we see the true value and the critical role that diversity plays in helping our theatre and community thrive. We are determined to foster an environment that respects and promotes the value of diversity. The BCC believes in the transformative power of the arts to enrich lives and revitalize communities. We are committed to sustaining a diverse, inclusive, and equitable space where everyone who participates in our programming feels valued and respected regardless of gender, age, race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, education, or ability. While this is not an end-all statement and will constantly evolve as we, as an organization, continue to learn and grow, this is a starting point for forming actions that will encourage equity and make an impact.
For many years our name alone has confused and surprised many. Let us assure you that we are NOT a "comedy club" in the sense that we are a stand-up club or a venue for similar performances. We are a community theater with a big emphasis on the word "community"!
Generally we produce four main shows per season, which include a musical and three plays beginning in November through May as well as other special events such as the Annual Barnstable Village Stroll, staged readings, and acting and directing workshops.
As the oldest running, live community theater on Cape Cod and one of the oldest in America, we strive to bring excellence to all of our patrons, volunteers, members and to the community. We are a MA 501(3)(c) nonprofit volunteer driven organization. Dedicated volunteers work in all areas of the theater from front of the house to performers to production to our Board of Directors.

This two-time Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers, and some good old-fashioned romance!
In THE 39 STEPS, a man with a boring life meets a woman with a thick accent who says she’s a spy. When he takes her home, she is murdered. Soon, a mysterious organization called “The 39 Steps” is hot on the man’s trail in a nationwide manhunt that climaxes in a death-defying finale!
