The Cape Playhouse has a unique place in American theatre history as the longest-running professional summer theater in the country. First opened in 1927 in a converted church that remains its home today, the Playhouse is the centerpiece of the Cape Cod Center for the Arts.
For over 90 years, the legendary Cape Playhouse has been bringing professional summer theatre to Cape Cod. Often referred to as the “Birthplace of the Stars,” The Cape Playhouse has attracted a long litany of famous actors since its inception in 1927.
At the Cape Playhouse our vision is to produce exceptional theatrical experiences while preserving a dynamic, vital and historic arts center.
From Bernadette Peters to Tallulah Bankhead, Bette Davis to Henry Fonda, Gertrude Lawrence to Ginger Rogers, the stage of the Cape Playhouse has been graced by some of the greatest talent in the American theatre.
