This lovely theater in Wellfleet isn't your average small town theater. Thought provoking drama with excellent actors makes this a real Wellfleet find.

The players , and crew did a wonderful job. We spent the week on the cape and have been visiting for about 20 years. This was our first, but not our last, visit to the playhouse. Very impressed with the production the facility. What a gem W.H.A.T. Is to the cape keep up the great work.

A fantastic show at a lovely theatre. If you get the chance to see this very funny show before it closes, I advise you to do so.

The WHAT is one of those great little theatres that make the Cape so appealing. It's an intimate venue with all the pizazz of a proper big theatre. This show had been recommended to us and we were not disappointed. A great, great, show. Lots of fun.

We saw the Fabulous Lipitones which was a well-written, superbly directed and well-acted musical comedy. All of the actors were equity actors.
