What Audiences are Saying

It’s not just the history and the beautiful grounds, the Cape Playhouse has outstanding performances and programming.

Must see this Place!

When traveling to the Cape, stop and see a show at the Cape Playhouse. It is a historic church that was moved to the property in the early 1920’s. You sit in pews and there isn’t a bad seat in the house! Many famous actors have graced this stage; see for yourself.

Hidden Gem!

The Cape Playhouse produces shows during the summer months with world class actors, most with Broadway experience and many with Tony nominations.

Yesterday we saw Steel Magnolias. What a treat – great story, humor and acting. If your on or near Cape Cod in the summer, don’t miss a show at the Cape Cod Playhouse.

Great Surprise!!

I will admit it, my wife made me go, and was I glad she did! This is a very cool old playhouse made of wood. Lots of famous actors and actresses have performed here. We saw a very funny, entertaining musical. Definitely a place to go if you need to fill an evening.
