The theme for our 2020 season is “Marriage”. The loyalty of our audience represents a kind of marriage and we intend to be true to what you have come to expect at Cape May Stage. The institution is also married to certain artists who work here repeatedly; this season might also be called the “welcome back” season for the relationships this theatre has enjoyed with writers, directors, designers and performers. Additionally, all of the plays this season focus on marriages in different stages… happy & joyous… loveless & bored… fresh & exciting… older & stale… and everything in between.
