It’s the Roaring 20s on the High Seas!
Cape May – Lewes Ferry and Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts and Humanities
Sponsor Theatrical Cruises aboard the MV Twin Capes
 
(N. Cape May, NJ) In July, the Cape May – Lewes Ferry (CMLF) and the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts and Humanities (MAC) are sponsoring four (4) special Roaring 20s Mystery Cruises in the Debraak Lounge aboard the MV Twin Capes ferry vessel. It's another memorable way to experience the Cape May- Lewes Ferry and the wonders of the Delaware Bay as a foot passenger.
 
According to Michael Porch, Marketing Manager for the Ferry, the CMLF is proud to partner with tourism organizations on both sides of the Delaware Bay to promote the Twin Capes region. “MAC is very important to the local tourism industry,” Porch said.   “It’s a great way for MAC to showcase and market their talents to a wider audience while the Ferry continues to offer more value-added programming on the vessels for our passengers to enjoy.”
 
“MAC is excited about this new partnership with the CMLF and the opportunity to take our new ‘Actors Off-Stage’ programs to another venue,” remarked Mary E. Stewart, Chief Outreach Officer. “This can open up a whole new audience for us.”
 
What:       Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts and Humanities will be performing: Bearcat Bootleggers. It’s 1928 and The Blind Pig is the most notorious speakeasy in Cape May. If you know the password and can get past Johnny the bouncer you’ll be treated to the best bathtub gin in town as well as the hospitality of Kate the proprietor and Maggie the chanteuse. It’s against the law, of course, but everybody’s doing it, so how bad can it be? Well, there are things you don’t know about the “staff” of the Blind Pig…things they don’t know about each other that make them a more dangerous mix than any of the cocktails they serve. And one of the patrons has a mysterious agenda of her own. So, enter at your own risk. The consequences of a visit to this illicit establishment could be a lot worse than a hangover.
 
When:       Tuesday, July 12 & July 19. For customers boarding in Cape May, a show will take place on the 1:00 p.m. departure while Lewes patrons will enjoy the same performance on the 2:45 p.m. sailing. 
 
Cost:         $20.00 per person, which includes a round-trip foot passenger ticket and a 45-minute performance by the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts and Humanities. Space is limited and reservations are required at 800-643-3779.
