CAPE MAY - Cape May Stage, Cape May’s premier professional Equity theatre, with the support of the Southern Shore Regional Destination Marketing Organization, is offering big discounts this month at Cape May Stage by hosting two special evenings of theater. The theatre’s production of “Time Stands Still”, Donald Margulies’ Tony nominee for Best Play, which opened last week at the Robert Shackleton Playhouse, has scheduled a half-price ‘Senior Night’ on Sept. 28 followed by a ‘Pay What You Can’ matinee performance on Sept. 30.
On Fri., Sept. 28, seniors, 62 and over, are invited to attend an 8 p.m. performance of “Time Stands Still” at the discounted rate of $15 per ticket (that’s 50% off regular box office prices). ‘Senior Nights’ sell out very quickly, so reservations are a must! On Sun., Sept. 30, theatre-goers are invited to attend a ‘Pay What You Can’ matinee performance at 3 p.m. The ticket amount paid is entirely at the discretion of the theatergoer (you decide the ticket price!) and is intended to draw those who are deterred by the traditionally higher prices.
“Time Stands Still” is about Sarah and James, a photojournalist and a foreign correspondent, trying to find happiness in a world that seems to have gone crazy. Theirs is a partnership based on telling the toughest stories, and together, making a difference. But when their own story takes a sudden turn, the adventurous couple confronts the prospect of a more conventional life. This moving new play prompts poignant questions about responsibility – to ourselves, to our loved ones, to our community, and to our world.
Cape May Stage encourages audiences to take advantage of these two upcoming special promotions. Tickets for designated ‘pay what you can’ performances go on sale at the box office at 2:45 p.m. prior to a 3 p.m. curtain time on Sept. 30. Patrons may elect to pay anywhere from $1 to the normal ticket price of $35 adults, $30 seniors, and $15 students. Whatever tickets have not been sold for that afternoon’s performance will be ‘pay what you can’ and will be on a first-come first-serve basis. Cash sales and exact change only. Seating for all ‘pay what you can’ performances is subject to availability and is not guaranteed.
“Time Stands Still” runs Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. at the Robert Shackleton Playhouse located at the corner of Bank & Lafayette Streets in downtown Cape May. The final public performance of the current run is at 8 p.m. on Sat. evening, Oct. 13.
Tickets are $35 adults, $30 seniors (62+), and $15 students. Call (609) 884-1341 for reservations and information or visit the theatre’s website, www.capemaystage.org. This production contains strong language.
“Time Stands Still” is presented through the gracious support of the The Mad Batter and Hemingway’s at the Grand Hotel. This season’s sponsors include 410 Bank Street/Frescos, Exit Zero, CapeSCape, The Corner Cottage Apartments, Harry’s Bar & Grille at the Montreal Inn, Lucky Bones, Cape May Winery, and The Washington Inn.
