“If my own experience had taught me anything, it was that, if a thing had to be done, it could be done.”

– Gertrude Lawrence

Yes, a thing had to be done…
After much plotting, scripting, and editing the story for the 2020 season at The Cape Playhouse, the unsavory character that continued to loom large was Covid-19, a villain at worst and a game changer at best. Following weeks of deliberation, we decided the only responsible thing to do for the safety and well-being of all our patrons, artists, and staff, is to postpone the story until the world learns how to manage Covid-19 and we are certain that we can open the doors of our historic theatre without fear.   
All of the highly anticipated shows of the 2020 season will be carried forward to 2021, including our special September addition of Million Dollar Quartet. Current ticket holders are still being contacted with information and ticketing options, and requests are still being processed. We have already made a large investment in these shows by securing licenses, contracting designers, hiring actors, and enlisting a small army of talented individuals to ensure our high-caliber stage performances. Fortunately they will be back next year – and we count on you being here too!
We will be busy this summer sprucing up our buildings and grounds and making plans to ensure that we will be 
ready to celebrate our 100th anniversary in grand style with you in 2027!
In addition, safety permitting, we hope to host a series of diverse outdoor entertainment for the community this summer, the likes of which have never been done on our unique campus for the arts.
We look forward to sharing the news with you in the weeks to come.
