Cape May Stage Hosts a "Beatles Brunch" on October 17th at the Robert Shackleton Playhouse

 (Cape May, NJ) -- Last month's cover of Rolling Stone magazine, featured The Beatles as the greatest rock and roll band of all time. With their names back in headlines, there is no better time than the present to celebrate the iconographic music this band created in such a short period of time that molded an entire generation.  On Sunday, October 17, the Cape May Stage Board of Trustees and staff invite the public to "Come Together" to enjoy a Sunday morning outdoor brunch party in the piazza on the Playhouse grounds featuring the music of John, Paul, George, and Ringo with a delicious all-you-can-eat Brunch buffet.

If you're already a fan, you'll be humming and tapping your toes as Cape May's self-penned "hippie folk rock" entertainers, Acoustic Mayhem, take the stage and sing all of your favorite Beatles tunes as well as the classic sounds of Simon and Garfunkel, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, America, The Grateful Dead and The Band among others. Guests will enjoy complimentary "Please Please Me" delicious dishes and "Strawberry Fields" gourmet desserts while sipping our signature Bellinis and Bloody Marys. You can gorge yourself on a feast of gastronomic delights while entertainers Will Knapp and Terry O'Brien invite you to brush up on your favorite Beatles tunes and become the stars of the show!  With a cap of only 12 karaoke performers allowed, guests can join in the musical fun by singing the lead on their favorite Beatles tune, and entertain the crowd with their favorite song.

In addition to the beats and treats, the Stage has assembled a secret live auction item that will have guests out-bidding each other to win a once-in-a-lifetime "theatrical" opportunity.  Details for this exclusive auction item will not be revealed until the day of the event as Cape May Stage's Artistic Director Roy Steinberg kicks off the bidding!  However, if you prefer the game of chance, tickets will be on sale to participate in a 50/50 cash raffle where your odds of winning get better with each ticket you purchase!

Gather all of your closest friends and treat yourselves to a late morning brunch filled with food, fun, and new friends to be made!  The attire is casual, so pull out your favorite Sunday jeans, paisley shirts, and Harrington Jackets, or darn your favorite 60s-style Beatlemania-inspired duds and get ready to rock and roll!

The fun begins at 11:00 am in the courtyard of the Robert Shackleton Playhouse at the corner of Bank & Lafayette Streets in downtown Cape May in the "Good Day Sunshine".  Tickets are $65, and proceeds support the ongoing artistic, cultural, and educational programs at Cape May Stage – a non-profit company that has been performing professional Equity theatre in Cape May since 1988. Reservations for the event are highly recommended. Visit capemaystage.com or call (609) 884-1341 for tickets and information.
