SEE YOU AT THE THEATER
You’re going to love the arts in Southern New Jersey!
  Cape May Stage
   East Lynne Theater
  The Levoy Theatre
  MARRIAGE IS THE THEME for the 2020 season at Cape May Stage – sounds interesting! Each production focuses on marriages in different stages – happy and joyous, loveless and bored, fresh and exciting, older and stale, and everything in between.
The season opens with Adopt a Sailor May 20 followed by The Last of Red Hot Lovers, Guilty Pleasures and Shirley Valentine before the holiday show Hanukkah Ham and Other Christmas Tragedies closes out the year. Performances are at the Robert Shackleton Playhouse, an historic building on Lafayette Street that dates to the 1850s when the Georgian-vernacular style structure was built as a Presbyterian church.
On Monday evenings throughout the summer, when theaters are traditionally dark, Cape May Stage partners with PNC Arts Alive, bringing exceptional talent to the resort for one-night shows. Cape May Stage's Dinner and Show is a great date night – enjoy dinner at one of many participating restaurants in town and then an entertaining evening at the theater. 609-770-8311; www.capemaystage.org
The Levoy Theatre traces its origins to the silent film era. After being vacant for years, it was renovated in a look reminiscent of the 1920s but with modern accoutrements. A vibrant center of entertainment for Millville and surrounding areas, the Levoy is home to the Off Broad Street Players plus the theater has a full schedule of concerts, children's plays and special performances. 856-327-6400; www.levoy.net
East Lynne Theater, specializing in the classics of the American Stage, is an award- winning, professional company that has been entertaining audiences for 40 years in this Victorian resort in the century-old First Presbyterian Church of Cape May, Possessing Harriet opens the season followed by Born Yesterday, Why Marry?, several one-night special productions and finally Christmas with Harte & O. Henry. During the summer, East Lynne performs its popular Tales of the Victorians, usually on the porches of lovely venues in the resort while guests sip tea or lemonade and indulge in tasty treats as they listen to famous authors like O. Henry, Mary Wilkins Freeman and Mark Twain read by ELTC performers and friends. 609-884-5898. www.eastlynnetheater.org
