About

The legendary Cape Playhouse, America's oldest professional summer theater, has been presenting theater in Cape Cod for over seventy years.

Californian Raymond Moore spent several summers in Provincetown where he was involved in painting scenery, writing plays, and acting in theater. His vision, however, was to have a theater of his own - a smart, sophisticated summer theater, which would bring Broadway to Cape Cod. In 1927, he bought a 19th century former Unitarian Meeting House for $200 and had it moved to 3 1/2 acres of pasture land fronting the Old Kings Highway in Dennis and converted it into a theater. The original pews, now with cushions, still serve as seats. Over the years, the Playhouse has undergone many changes and improvements - including the addition of air conditioning. The Raymond Moore Foundation now oversees the 26 acre grounds of the Playhouse, which is also home to the Cape Cinema and the Cape Museum of Fine Arts.
