What’s Playing?

Our 2023 Main Stage season kicks off on June 8th when “Shirley Valentine” officially opens at the Robert Shackleton Playhouse.

The Crown Jewel Gala

June 10, 2023

Make plans to join us at our annual spring fundraising event, the Crown Jewel Gala Gala, being held on Saturday, June 10, at the Corinthian Yacht Club of Cape May. Make plans to join us for this royal affair to remember. The evening will be filled with live music by the Cape May Diamonds, delicious tapas dishes, an open bar, signature drinks, and a live auction with amazing one-of-a-kind experiences. Plus the Yacht Club offers a safe, tented outdoor environment with spectacular water views. All to support live, professional theater in Cape May, NJ. 

Reading Series

Spring 2023 Virtual and Live Play Readings

Oftentimes readings are the first step in developing a script for a full production. Sometimes the script is finished and the reading gives producers and boards a taste of what a full production might look like. Both of these scenarios are part of Cape May Stage’s 2023 Reading Series. Join us this spring for both virtual and in-person readings to explore new and diverse plays. 

Movie Nights at Cape May Stage

Spring 2023 Movies

Movie Night at Cape May Stage is a community “Film-Raiser” event to benefit a local non-profit. Join us this spring for a series of fun, family-friendly flicks.

As part of our commitment to the local community, 50% of all proceeds from this movie series will be donated to a local non-profit organization. Check out the list of movies showing this spring.
