Pilates for the Playhouse

The week of July 12th through the 17th, Joe’s Place-True Pilates in East Dennis hosted PILATES FOR THE PLAYHOUSE! - a fundraising event at our studio benefiting the Cape Playhouse in Dennis, MA. With the help of generous contributions, we raised $1800! Last year, Joe’s Place was able to raise over $1500, providing a substantial donation for the local icon. In fact, the event was such a success; Joe’s Place decided to make sure it’s an annual event!!

PILATES FOR THE PLAYHOUSE! featured a full week of donation only Pilates classes, demonstrations on the Pilates apparatus and free trial sessions on the Pilates Reformer. In addition, the event culminated on Saturday, the 18th with a raffle for massages, Pilates classes, Pilates private sessions, lululemon athletica clothing, Arbonne Swiss Skin Products - and a pair of tickets for a night at The Playhouse! The auction also featured donated items and gift certificates for services and products from many generous, local businesses.

The Cape Playhouse is a historical icon in the Dennis Community and on Cape Cod. Celebrating more than 80 seasons, the Cape Playhouse is America's Oldest Professional Summer Theatre. Californian Raymond Moore first brought Broadway to Cape Cod in 1927 when he bought a 19th century former Unitarian Meeting House, moved it to 3 1/2 acres of pasture land fronting the Old Kings Highway (820 Route 6A) in Dennis and converted it into a theatre. The original pews, still serve as seats.

Over the years, the Cape Playhouse has attracted many big name stars from Broadway and the silver screen. Many made their professional stage debuts there, giving it the nickname "The Birthplace of the Stars." Each season of it’s over 80 years, the Playhouse has aimed to bring the best performers, favorite and familiar plays, comedies, mysteries and musicals to the audiences of Cape Cod. The ultimate goal is to guarantee quality, professional entertainment in the form of great theatre, a goal that Joe’s Place-True Pilates firmly supports.
