The word has spread that Cape May Stage attracts the highest level of talent in the state and requests from students to watch our process have come pouring in. For the first time, Cape May Stage is producing shows cast entirely from our acting interns and stage managed by our stage management interns.
We have interns from North Carolina, Nevada, Connecticut and Philadelphia as well as local students in Cape May. They will perform family entertainment called “Cape May Kids” written by Marlena Lustik about Cape May in the 1950s that is nostalgic for grandparents and hilarious for children. That show will be performed on Monday mornings through August 16 at 10 AM right inside the Robert Shackleton Playhouse.
Rich Orloff’s “Romantic Fools” will be performed by our interns after the main stage production on Saturday nights in July. These comic vignettes about dating are the perfect way to start or end an evening! Tickets to this show get you a free drink and free admission to Cabanas on the beach! Come see “I Hate Hamlet” or “Romance/Romance” and stay for this sexy and fun show! Or just come for “Romantic Fools” and have a romantic dinner first!
On July 12, Mary Testa is back with another extraordinary evening. This is part of our popular “Broadway Series” of extraordinary stars coming to Cape May. Last season she was the hit of the summer. Mary Testa is a two time Tony Award nominee and she will be appearing with two time Tony Award winner Michael Starobin whose orchestrations for ”Next To Normal” just won the Pulitzer Prize. After the show the entire audience is invited to the Washington Inn at their new wine bar. Come meet Mary Testa and Michael Starobin while feasting on tempting morsels and sampling new and interesting vintages!
