No, Scientology is not the first theatre cult. A theatre mask was the symbol of the Dionysus cult and theatre grew from religious roots. My fictional cult will have similar roots.

Many of the early actresses also served as courtesans and my fertility cult will make use of this fact. One problem I have in making myself believe such a cult existed is the centuries that only men served in European theatre.
