Cape May 12/21/2005

By Rick Racela

First of all, I’m happy to report that you have one more chance to see Cape May Stage’s hilarious holiday show, “Every Christmas Story Ever Told (Vixens’ Revenge),” because they have added a performance.
The show is tonight at 8 p.m., and if you call right now and are very lucky, there might be a seat or two left.
Tickets are $25, $18 for seniors and $8 for students. Call 884-1341 right away!
East Lynne’s 2005 season is finished, and they would like to thank everyone who supported them.
They have already mapped out their 2006 season, which is as follows: “Sherlock Holmes’ Adventure of the Copper Beeches” in the style of a 1930’s broadcast, March 3, 4, Nov. 3, 4;
Julie Jensen’s “Two-Headed,” about the pioneer West, June 21-July 15;
“The Leach Diaries 1875” June 27;
NJ Premiere of Annette M. Baldwin’s “Civil War Spy Elizabeth Van Lew,” July 19-22;
“Paul Robeson Through His Words and Music” with Derrick McQueen, July 26-29;
Somerset Maugham’s “Rain,” Aug. 2-Sept. 3;
Jesse Lynch’s comedy, “Why Marry?” Sept. 20-Oct 14; and Bret Harte’s comedy “Dick Spindler’s Family Christmas,” Nov. 24-25 and Dec. 8-9.
This sounds like a tempting season, doesn’t it?
Season tickets are available now, and the cost is $70 for seven tickets, which can be used in any way.
Take a group of friends to see one show, or see seven different shows, or any combination in between.
 To order season tickets, send a check to East Lynne’s office at 121 Fourth Ave., West Cape May, NJ 08204. 
For information about tickets, touring productions, and educational outreach, contact the office by mail, by phone at 884-5898, or online at
For those of you who didn’t have a chance to take a Candlelight House Tour, it isn’t too late to get a close-up look at the holiday dŽcor of some of Cape May’s finest B&Bs.
The Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts sponsors Lamplighter Christmas Tours on Dec. 27, 28 and 29 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
This self-guided tour takes you to the Dormer House, The Henry Sawyer Inn, The John Wesley Inn, The Primrose Inn and the White Dove Cottage, all beautifully decorated.
Along the way, stop at the Carriage House on the grounds of the Emlen Physick Estate to see the “Dr. Physick and His World” exhibit and enjoy holiday goodies.
Tickets are $15 for adults and $7.50 for children ages three through 12. Call 884-5404 to reserve tickets.
Speaking of the “Dr. Physick and His World” exhibit, it is closing on Jan. 1.
Admission is just $2, and it offers a wonderful look at this influential Cape May resident.
Do stop by the exhibit before it closes, and watch this column for details about the new exhibit that opens in mid-January, “A Feeling of Community, Revisited.”
To all of you who celebrate it, I wish you a very merry Christmas!
I absolutely cannot wait to visit my family in northwest New Jersey, see old friends at my childhood church, and give the gifts I’ve carefully chosen to all my loved ones.
Soon, of course, it will be the New Year, and I love marking a fresh start by reflecting on the past year and what’s to come.
Please don’t forget to tell me about any New Year’s events you’re planning right away so I can include them in my next column.
