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.

REVIEW: "It's A Wonderful Life" At Mile Square Theatre
Nestled in a corner of Hoboken, on the second floor, lies the studios of radio station WMST. It’s a wonderful art deco studio, replete with fine wooden walls, embedded with colorful lights an applause sign. On stage, we’ve got a few chairs, several microphones and a whole corner wedged with all the necessary props – piano, men’s shoes, sheet metal – to create the audio effects for the production of “It’s a Wonderful Life.”
Betsy Aidem Puts A Woman's Touch On George Street Playhouse's "A Doll's House, Part 2"
Betsy Aidem is a veteran actress you might have seen on Broadway. Or maybe on an episode of “Law & Order: SVU.” Or maybe on the big screen last year in “The Greatest Showman.”
But over the next few weeks in New Brunswick, Aidem is adding a brand-new section to her résumé — by helming a sequel (of sorts) to a classic play that’s more than 100 years old.
REVIEW: "Irving Berlin's Holiday Inn" at Paper Mill Playhouse
One man’s ambition is comfortable yet to another it is anathema. This is the simplest way to convey the central theme of Irving Berlin’s Holiday Inn – now playing at Papermill Playhouse. The show is a rich, effervescent, beautiful, fun, musical that is well worth booking tickets for. It enthralled my phone addicted 13 year-old and earned a shout out on Instagram - high praise in and of itself.
REVIEW: "A Doll's House, Part 2" at George Street Playhouse
For well over a century the world has been wondering what ever happened to Nora Helmer from Henrik Ibsen’s classic play A Doll’s House. Nora was a woman during the 19th century in male dominated Norway when women could not sign contracts without their husband’s permission. She challenged this law, essentially committing forgery. And, even though she committed a crime for the purpose of saving her husband’s life, her actions wound up destroying her marriage when someone tried to blackmail her.
