The Cape Playhouse

Route 6A, Dennis Village

The Cape Playhouse is America's oldest professional summer theater. Founder Raymond Moore moved an abandoned Unitarian meetinghouse to land of Old King's Highway he had acquired in the 1920s. The theater opened in 1927 with a play starring Basil Rathbone. Henry Fonda and Bette Davis, a former playhouse usher, made their acting debuts here.
