  • The Cape Playhouse has undergone a generational transition, in management and operations. New life is evident at every turn, but the theater is still the old classic. We've been to two productions...  more »

  • Been to every show this season. Great season with South Pacific being the highlight for me. Definitely an experience everyone should try. The grounds are beautiful and the structure itself is amazing. Pre-show sitting with friends at the gazebo with a glass of wine watching the sun set-priceless!
  • Historic playhouse in Dennis. Quality of performance and acoustics always above average. Seating in balcony was wooden benches which were uncomfortable even with cushions, but you can't have everything. Plenty of free parking. Great summer night 'go to' entertainment.
