Each year, our audience makes a commitment to the Cape Playhouse legacy and promise by making a gift in the “off-season”. That support enables us to “weather” the long winter months as we prepare for the summer’s professional productions in Dennis. The results for the 2015 Season were outstanding!
Over 26,000 attended the six Playhouse shows – an annual increase of 16% – and more importantly, the positive response to the artistic quality was tremendous. From MY FAIR LADY and THE DROWSY CHAPERONE to MURDER BY MISADVENTURE and THE VELOCITY OF AUTUMN: the breadth and virtuosity of our talented actors and designers received standing ovations.
Our staff grows from four to twenty-four for the summer. They are joined by eight college students with paid professional internships, and hundreds of usher volunteers assisting in making the magic happen. And of course, over one hundred guest artists acted, directed, choreographed, designed, or played instruments to entertain us. I am always amazed at how the spirit of collaboration motivates so many people to create such a high-level of production in such a short period of time.
Now, the 90th Anniversary Season awaits us in 2016! Once again we are working away to bring you the best of professional theater, and once again we could use your support to help us get ready. A generous donor has made a $45,000 gift to us as a challenge to raise an additional $45,000 by January 31st. This “$90,000 for the 90th” will complete our Fall Campaign, and help underwrite our pre-season costs.
Make a tax-deductible gift today. We’ll have 76 Trombones salute you for it!
