Jennifer Valentine, Director of CASA, To Lead A Panel Discussion Following "The Shuck"
at Cape May Stage
originally published: 10/10/2018
(CAPE MAY, NJ) -- Jennifer Valentine, Director of Program Services for Court Appointed Special Advocates, will attend the world premiere of Cape May Stage’s The Shuck by Cape May County native Shawn Fisher and directed by award winning director Roy Steinberg on Saturday, October 20 at 7:30pm. Cape May Stage will donate one dollar from every ticket sold at this performance to CASA.
Ms. Valentine will lead a panel discussion immediately following the performance about family dynamics using the play as a catalyst for discussion about the one thousand children in foster care in Atlantic and Cape May Counties. The entire audience is invited to attend.
The word “shuck” can mean “to throw away” or “worthless” as well as to remove an oyster from its shell. The characters in the play deal with a trouble child and a dysfunctional family yet it is very funny at the same time.
The Shuck features four time Emmy Award winner Kim Zimmer (Reva on “Guiding Light”), New York actor Bill Tatum, and Cape May City native Kyra Adams, a professional actress now living in New York. They’ll join the discussion as well.
Tickets can be purchased online at capemaystage.org or by calling the box office at 609-770-8311. Special low prices are available for seniors, students and active military. Cape May Stage is located at 405 Lafayette Street in the heart of the historic district of Cape May.

But to do this, he must uncover the vampire’s lair and pierce his heart with a wooden stake.

Deconstructing The Myths Of Bruce SpringsteenWhen Bruce Springsteen was about to release his debut album, the record company wanted him to say he was from New York City, but he refused. It’s somewhat ironic that over 40 years later, he has turned a legendary Broadway theatre into his home five nights a week with Springsteen on Broadway - a show that has performed in front of over 150,000 people and grossed more than $75 million since making its debut on October 12, 2017 after several preview performances.
