Wilbraham Mansion and Cape May Stage

If you are traveling to Cape May for your stay at The Wilbraham Mansion, you might consider taking in a production at the Cape May Stage. The equity theatre is located in the center of town within a beautifully restored church. Originally built in 1853, this fully renovated theatre is a cozy and comfortable place to enjoy some of the finest theatre you are likely to see off Broadway.

The Mission of Cape May Stage is as follows: Cape May Stage provides high quality professional Equity theatre, focused on excellence in acting in an intimate setting, to the residents and visitors of Cape May and surrounding areas; and fosters Arts Education in academic and non-traditional venues.

In 1988 a rogue transplant from Philadelphia, Michael Laird, descended upon Cape May and incorporated Cape May Stage as an Equity theatre company. In 1993, Laird persuaded the City Council to allow him to rent the Welcome Center to host his evening productions. That November, “The Dorothy Parker Story” became the first Cape May Stage production to be performed in its current home. For the next seven seasons Laird attracted award-winning actors from Philadelphia such as Jen Childs, Grace Gonglewski and Scott Greer to bring their talents to his stage. A highlight from those years was the production of “Love Letters” featuring Robert Prosky and Estelle Parsons.

Michael Laird passed away in 2001 however his dream continues to thrive in this culturally sensitive town. The theatre successfully conducted a $1.4 million dollar capital campaign that served to fully restore the theatre and the future of equity theatre is bright in Cape May for many years to come.
