The Veterans’ Company (VetCo) is a free program open to any veteran eager to learn the craft of theater through an intensive production process. Founded by Cape Rep Associate Artist and Vietnam Veteran Art Devine, VetCo offers free professional training in all aspects of theater arts and has the potential to open new doors to a life in the arts for Cape vets. Devine came to the theater many years after his service in the Army and discovered a vocation and a professional career as an actor, director, playwright, scenic carpenter and teacher. He says the theater, “helped keep me strong and focused on the positive side of living,” and he hopes to share that with other veterans.
