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.)

However, on Christmas Eve, he is visited by the doomed ghost of his former partner Jacob Marley, who tells him that three more spirits will visit him that night. The first one, the spirit of Christmas Past, recalls his miserable youth when he lost his only love due to his greed. The second spirit, Christmas Present shows him the poor situation of Bob’s family and how joyful life can be. The final spirit, of Christmas Future shows the miser his miserable fate if he fails to change his miserly ways. In the end, Scrooge decides that life is too short to be miserable, changing his behavior toward Christmas, Bob, his nephew and people in general.
