Been to a bunch of theater venues on Cape Cod, first time here. Very nice building layout and theater. It's relatively new (2007) and is nice from that aspect in comparison to the older theater buildings on Cape. Though you lose that charm. Friendly people and the play was great! Saw "Around The World In Eighty Days" and have to... More

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

We've seen several show there this season, tickets are always inexpensive to draw an audience, and the performances are MORE than worth it.

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.

With family and friends, saw WHAT's performance of period of adjustment. Really great. Seating and price ($40 pp, discount re for kids and students), no too crowded, and of course actors. Will see others in the future.

We booked our tickets way in advance just so we wouldn't miss this opportunity to enjoy this lovely Theatre in Wellfleet. The theatre is very well laid out and has a real intimate feeling putting you so close to the actors that you can see every nuance and facial expression making this an enchanting theatre experience. The tickets are reasonably... More

This theater is fantastic, with not a bad seat in the house. Theatergoers are so close, viewers seem to be right in the action of the play. The seats are comfortable and relaxing. We saw Tennessee Williams' Period of Adjustment at the Julie Harris Stage. It was a fabulous production of William's surprising comedy, very well cast, excellently acted, marvelously... More

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.
