Cape May Stage offers 'A Tuna Christmas'
The Cape May Stage holiday production of "A Tuna Christmas," the sequel to the hit comedy "Greater Tuna," will open Friday, Nov. 23, and run through Dec. 30, at the Robert Shackleton Playhouse in Cape May.
The amusing plot of "A Tuna Christmas" centers on the town's annual Christmas yard display contest, won 14 times in a row by Vera Carp. A mysterious "Christmas phantom," known for vandalizing the yard displays, threatens to throw the contest into turmoil. New York-based actors Turner Crumbley and Jody Cook play the entire cast of more than 20 eccentric characters of both genders and various ages.
The Robert Shackleton Playhouse is located at 405 Lafayette St., in downtown Cape May. Showtimes for "A Tuna Christmas" are 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, and 3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
Tickets are $35 for adults, $30 for seniors and $15 for students. The show runs for two hours with intermission. Thursday, Dec. 6, is Pay-What-You-Can Night. Sunday, Dec. 9, is a half-price senior matinee.
