You’ll rule the school as we celebrate everyone’s favorite rock-n-roll movie musical at the Grease Sing-A-Long! We know that for all of you who’ve remained hopelessly devoted to Danny, Sandy, Rizzo, Kenickie and the whole Rydell High gang, Grease is still, and will always be, the word, so we’re bringing back one of the most popular sing-a-longs ever! Your chills will be multiplyin’ and the mood electrifyin’ as we screen a specially-subtitled Sing-A-Long version of Grease that will help you belt out such hit tunes as “You’re the One That I Want,” “Greased Lightning,” “We Go Together,” “Summer Loving,” and many more at this fun-filled screening of the 1970s movie about the 1950s that’s still going strong in 2017! This is a joint fundraiser with Middletown Main Street. The Everett Theatre, Middletown.

 

033017holytrafficChapel Street Players present: Holy Traffic!, March 31st – April 8th

Against the backdrop of a papal visit to Atlantic City, one Tony Dallariva, owner of an end-of-boardwalk pizza joint, commits to renewing his Catholic faith. Then, almost at once, he’s tricked by his lowlife brother, Joey, into stealing the popemobile. As this fast-paced farce unfolds, the brothers’ night-time ride in the stolen vehicle becomes a phantasmagoric tour of the nutty fringes of religious belief. They get entangled in the rituals of evangelical snake handlers, New Age pagans, Satanists and Voodooists. Moreover, during their frantic drive, the Dallariva brothers discover an unintended passenger in the trunk, one whose holiness complicates this ludicrous journey along the Jersey Shore. Chapel Street Players, Newark.

033017mattressOnce Upon a Mattress, April 7th – 9th

If you thought you knew the story of ‘The Princess and The Pea,’ you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken’s love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn’t the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you’ll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again. Clear Space Theatre Company, Rehoboth Beach.
