Cape Playhouse - Dennis

820 Main Street Dennis, MA 02638


For over seventy years, the legendary Cape Playhouse has been bringing professional summer theatre to Cape Cod, establishing it as America’s Oldest Professional Summer Theatre. Often referred to as “Where Broadway Goes For Summer,” the Cape Playhouse has attracted a long litany of famous actors since its inception in 1927. The list reads like a veritable ‘who’s who’ of stage and screen. Young unknown Bette Davis first worked as an usher before returning the following summer to act. And one promising student named Jane was given a small role in a play starring her father, Henry Fonda. Many actors such as Bette Davis, Gregory Peck, Humphrey Bogart, Robert Montgomery and Shirley Booth made their early professional appearances at the Cape Playhouse before going on to win Academy Awards.

For a full season schedule, visit, or the Cape Playhouse Box Office (820 Main Street, Route 6A, Dennis, MA), 508-385-3911.
