CAPE MAY — What better way to beat the heat than with a sweet treat?

The “Old Fashioned Ice Cream Social,” hosted by the Board and Staff of Cape May Stage, is part of the theatre’s “25 Free Things” initiative. This initiative represents Cape May Stage’s desire to thank the community for 25 years of support for providing 25 free events throughout the season.

“For 25 years the Cape May community has supported Cape May Stage with their applause and generosity,” said Jon Wojciechowski, the theater’s Managing Director. “Providing 25 free events this season is our way of saying thanks and, hopefully, welcoming new supporters who will help lead us through the next 25 years.”

The “25 Free Things” will continue with a fiery twist with “Danger: Stay Away!” a series of staged readings for the fearless theatregoer, occurring throughout September, October and November.

This event is free for all ages and advance reservations are not required.
