About these ratings

With nearly 90 seasons under its belt, the Cape Playhouse is the country's oldest professional summer theater. Complete with the original — and somewhat uncomfortable — pews serving as the venue's seats, the interior makes for a quaint theater experience. But don't let the shabby-chic atmosphere fool you: The playhouse boasts quite an impressive alumni base, including Gregory Peck, Humphrey Bogart and Bette Davis.

Though tickets can be pricey, many theatergoers say the productions are well worth the cost, praising the production quality and the ambiance. Many past visitors descibe the venue as beautiful and the atmoshere as welcoming, though some do lament the stiff seating.

Nestled in the sleepy town of Dennis along the Mid Cape, the Cape Playhouse operates in an old meeting house. The summer season runs from June through September and ticket prices vary by show type, show time and seat section. Season schedules and tickets are available online at the playhouse's website. Tickets can also be purchased by phone or at the box office, which opens for the summer season from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Playhouse also offers hour-long behind-the-scenes tours departing from the Lobby of the Playhouse.
