Music Trivia Contest
Thursday, November 7th from 5:30 pm
Where: East Lynne Theater Company – 121 Fourth Ave, Cape May
Since last year’s trivia contest was so successful, the award-winning Equity professional East Lynne Theater Company is bringing it back with “The American Songbook II.” Once more, everyone may test their skills with a Music Trivia Contest. Questions could be about a movie featuring a famous song written by Cole Porter, Bruce Springsteen, or Woodie Guthrie, or what were those lyrics to a song sung by Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, or Dolly Parton? How about what song was sung in which Broadway musical? To add to the fun, music is performed live by Chris Sooy, Lew London, and Jennifer Bissell, and winners receive prizes. The evening begins with hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. At 6 pm are special tastings of Aleathea’s specialties, like last year, and at 7 pm, the competition begins! The MCs for the evening are Mark Lang and James Rana.
