SUMMER ON STAGE: Local Live Theater Companies

Live Theater in Ocean City, NJ & Area
Here in Ocean City (Cape May County, NJ) and neighboring Atlantic County, we are blessed with an amazing array of opportunities to enjoy live theater productions!

CAPE MAY STAGE is celebrating its 25 anniversary this summer. Some productions will be plays that were on Broadway 25 years ago; others will be new (like the opening play) by a playwright who grew up in south Jersey. The new managing director, Jon Wojciechowski, has instituted the employment of paid interns this season.  Cape May Stage is about 45-minutes south on the Garden State Parkway from the Scarborough Inn.

SURFLIGHT THEATER in Beach Haven, NJ premieres the 2013 season with "Les Miserables."  Interestingly, many of the cast members are recruited in NYC and spend the entire summer living and working at the theater.  A musical, "South Pacific," will be performed July 10 - 28 and the drama, "Our Town," will be staged Sept. 25 - Oct. 4.

GREATER OCEAN CITY THEATRE COMPANY opens this season with "Broadway on the OC Boardwalk IV" on June 26 at the Music Pier (7-minute walk from the Scarborough Inn). Other productions will include, "Peter Pan," and "A Murderous Night at the Museum."  Call 609-398-1118 for further information; tickets may be purchased online.
