In the heart of Dennis Village, tucked away behind Main Street, is an absolute gem known as the CAPE COD CENTER FOR THE ARTS. This cultural hub consisting of 20 acres is home to The Cape Playhouse, The Cape Cinema and The Cape Cod Museum of Art. How lucky are we??!
The Playhouse' summer stock season began this week featuring TEA AT FIVE with Stephanie Zimbalist in the lead of this bioplay about Katherine Hepburn (saw it on Broadway with Kate Mulgrew - really great.) Lots of great plays coming up, including GREY GARDENS (also saw this one on Broadway and loved it.) The Cinema features foreign-type films (no Avatar playing here!!) and is a very special cinema-going experience with it's extra wide seats and, of course, the fantastic Roger Kent mural on the ceiling. ( They occasionally have live shows like this past April when they featured an indie rock group that was holed up in Dennis to rehearse for the upcoming Coachella Music Festival in CA. ) The Museum itself is a real treasure, exhibiting the art of outstanding artists and offering art classes for children and adults throughout the year, with special programs in the summer months. All in all, a very fine cultural center supporting the arts on Cape Cod - and we're so fortunate to have it right here in Dennis!
