CAPE MAY - Cape May Stage celebrates Christmas on July 13, 2014 at noon on the Second Stage with New York actress Ginna Hoben in “The Twelve Dates of Christmas!” Currently starring this summer as Rosalind in Ken Ludwig’s hilarious comedy “Moon Over Buffalo,” Hoben writes and stars as Mary in this delicious one-woman show about how much the holidays suck after your heart’s been crushed.

In this staged reading, Hoben takes audiences on a whirlwind adventure of the heart after she sees her fiancé making out with his co-worker on national TV at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. After she dumps him and the ring, she then spends the next year being set up, hooked up, strung up, and fed up as she navigates her life “alone” as a New York actor in her thirties. Hailed by critics as “witty, funny…light-hearted and touching,”

CAPE MAY – Cape May’s fireworks, after being postponed from July 4 to Sunday, July 6, did not survive the short trip out of the inlet due to 8 to 10-foot seas.

Jack Moran, owner of SeaTow, said his company was hired to tow the barges containing the fireworks to its designated position off Congress Street Beach. However, he said the 25 mph wind coming out of the south and an outgoing tide created a problem for the barges.
