Saw Foreigner over the weekend. A great play with many twists and turns - if you love/like live performance, make sure to put the Dennis Playhouse on your list. They also have Friday morning events for children.

Expensive seats compared to many other Cape Cod Theaters. I would advise some of the other Cape Cod theaters for excellent entertainment and they are very affordable.

"Second city" play was ok, not great, but this venue is special. Avoid the balcony as acoustics are marginal.

We would recommend the balcony or orchestra seats. They are a bit more expensive but the view of the stage is a whole better than the Loge seats. Great place though and you'll enjoy the actors.
