Wrinkles, The Musical at Cape Cod Theater in Harwich MA

Wrinkles, The Musical will be performed at Cape Cod Theater in Harwich from May 11th to June 11th. This is the premiere performance of the musical.  Wrinkles, The Musical  at Cape Cod Theater in Harwich MA

In 2008, two dear friends celebrated their 60th birthdays. One went on a silent retreat for three weeks and wrote poetry. The other got a personal trainer, cosmetic dentistry, Botox, Juvaderm, and laser treatments. Using one of the poems, Hags and Crones as their inspiration, the two created the Wrinkles Review. The work was further shaped, developed, and directed by Broadway producer and longtime friend, Dani Davis as a “work in progress” performance at WHAT in 2010. Sold out houses and standing ovations encouraged the writers to keep working toward the development of an evening-length, two-act musical. With the intention of empowering older women, the writers based the script on real stories of Cape women ages 60-95 shared in workshops, interviews, and seminars. The Cape Cod Theatre Company presents the premiere of Wrinkles, the Musical, A Celebration of Women and Aging written by Naomi Turner and Wilderness Sarchild; directed by Nina Schuessler; with music by Grammy Award winner Jason Howland, Cape recording artist Sarah Burrill, and composer and musical director Malcolm Granger. (Mature audience.)

Monomoy Island Excursions in Harwichport MA

Monomoy Island Excursions is a family owned and operated business in Harwich, Cape Cod, Massachussets. For over 10 years we’ve been taking people out to Monomoy, a barrier island and wildlife refuge off the coast of Chatham, MA, where thousands of seals have made their home.

seal

While seals are the main attraction on our cruise, there is a lot more to see! We visit Wychmere Harbor, in Harwich Port. This is one of the most scenic harbors on the Cape! We also stop in to Stage Harbor in Chatham, where you get a close up view of Stage Harbor Lighthouse, and can catch a glimpse of Chatham Lighthouse. Not to mention the combination of large yachts, small sailboats, and various fishing boats that fill each harbor. You get a real taste of the sea life on Nantucket Sound.
We run seal cruises several times a day, generally lasting 1 1/2 hours. While we see lots of harbor seals and gray seals, Monomoy is also home to hundreds of species of birds and other wildlife. There is a trained naturalist on board who narrates the tour and can answer questions about the wildlife as well as the history of the island and the historic  Monomoy Lighthouse.

A great family night  on the Cape Cod  is the Wellfleet Drive  in theatre Enjoy first run double features  movies every night in the summer at the only Drive-In Theatre on Cape Cod. Built in 1957, the Wellfleet Drive-In hosts a 100′ x 44′ screen, and a state-of-the-art FM stereo sound system that decodes modern sound tracks. In many (but not all!) spots Mono original speakers are available for your nostalgic listening pleasure. There’s a playground and snack bar too! The Wellfleet Drive-In Theatre is open from late May through the weekend beyond Labor Day.

Wellfleet Drive-in Theatre, Cape Cod MA

 

You must plan to listen to the soundtrack through your car stereo on FM 89.5. Mono speakers are no longer 100% functional. Like lots of things from the 1950’s, some still work and some don’t! These are mostly for nostalgic purposes; the sound is much better through your radio. You should also use the accessory key position (see your car owners manual) instead of the on position, and turn off all other accessories including the a/c even though the engine isn’t running. Please know how to disable your car alarm as well. Please keep the sound to a reasonable volume, our neighbors need tranquility.
