LOWER TOWNSHIP – The Cape Island Theatre Company will turn the second floor of the Old Grange Restaurant by Tony Clark at Historic Cold Spring Village into Possum Grove, North Carolina, the setting of “Carl’s Kris Kringle,” to benefit Volunteers in Medicine of Cape May County.

“Carl’s Kris Kringle,” written and produced by Ray Crew, tells the story of a dreamer who buys a run-down radio station in a small Southern town only to find that he and his pregnant wife are flat broke a week before Christmas. To solve his problems, he needs a man who hates Christmas to play Santa. 

“Carl’s Kris Kringle” will accept donations at each performance in December to help Volunteers in Medicine of Cape May County. The donations will help VIM serve six more patients in 2013.

VIM is a free medical clinic serving low income residents of Cape May County with no access to Health Insurance. VIM has served more than 4,000 individuals with more than 24,000 office visits, all at no charge to the patient.

Even the most basic healthcare is often out of reach for the thousands of Cape May County residents without health insurance. It costs VIM $495 to care for one patient for a year.

“Carl’s Kris Kringle” will be presented at the Old Grange Restaurant by Tony Clark, 735 Seashore Road, at 3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays Dec. 1-16. Doors open at 2:30 p.m.

Seating is limited and available on a first come, first serve basis. For more information, call the Cape Island Theatre Company at 408-6595 or Historic Cold Spring Village at 408-6595.
