For the second year in a row, Fins Bar & Grille has opened its doors to nonprofits by helping them raise money through its Sunday Social events. This year, Cape May Stage was chosen as one of the lucky recipients. Fins Bar & Grille will be donating half of all earned revenue from the event to Cape May Stage. The event takes place on Sunday, March 19 from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The Sunday Social has become the event of the winter season, with a build-your-own Mimosa and Bloody Mary bar, live music, brunch and full lunch menu.
The Cape May Stage season kicks off on May 24 with “Billy Bishop Goes to War” by John Gray with Eric Peterson. This Canadian musical is the story of heroism that takes the viewer up into the skies, back down into the trenches and inside the human spirit. The show runs through June 23. Following this high-flying musical is “Tale of the Allergist’s Wife” by Charles Busch, running from June 28 to Aug. 4. The comedic tale tells the story of a New York doctor’s wife obsessed with pursuing culture, who is catapulted into a mid-life crisis when a mysterious woman enters the picture and ends up destroying everything in her wake. Running Aug. 9 to Sept. 22 is the Pulitzer Prize-winning comedic drama, “The Gin Game” by D.L. Coburn, where a card game becomes a metaphor for life.
The fall season begins with “Outside Mullingar” by John Patrick Shanley, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of “Doubt,” opening Sept. 27 and running through Nov. 10. In the same mood as Shanley’s award-winning film “Moonstruck,” this Irish comedy is a funny, unconventional love story with a magical twist. The season wraps up with “The Ultimate Christmas Story” by Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor on Nov. 15, and ends on Dec. 30. This hilariously funny play tells the story of three madcap actors, doing everything from Cirque du Soleil to English pantomime as part of a church pageant that goes horribly wrong.
