“This has been an exciting summer for Clear Space, and we’re winding it up with a special event,” says Wesley Paulson, executive director. “Clear Space has teamed with the Atlantic Sands Hotel and Conference Center to bring playwright and comedian Del Shores to Rehoboth Beach Sept. 5-6.”
Family favorite "Oliver!" will have its final performance Tuesday, Aug. 26. Based on Charles Dickens’ classic, "Oliver Twist," this timeless musical follows young Oliver on his journey from orphanage to the seedy underground of London to finding his family.
"The Full Monty," closing Saturday, Aug. 30, follows six unemployed steelworkers in Buffalo, N.Y., as they create a strip act after seeing their wives’ enthusiasm for a touring company of Chippendales dancers. Their show will be better than the Chippendales dancers as they’ll go “the full monty” and strip all the way!
"Sordid Lives" ends the Clear Space summer season Saturday, Sept. 6, and offers a heaping helping of Southern-fried comic melodrama including infidelity, country & western music, and Airstream trailers. Clear Space welcomes writer and comedian Del Shores Friday, Sept. 5, author of "Sordid Lives." The festivities begin a with pre-show reception with hors d’oeuvres catered by Hobos, complimentary wine and beer, champagne and desserts at intermission and a question-and-answer session with Shores after the show. Shores will present his one-man show "My Sordid Best" at 10 p.m., Sept. 6, following that evening’s performance of "Sordid Lives.“ "The censors will be absent, the language will be crude, the stories will be raw and if you are offended, that's your choice!” Shores warns. Separate tickets are required for "Sordid Lives" and "My Sordid Best."
In addition to the three main-stage productions, "The Rest of the Best of Christopher Peterson’s EYECONS" closes Sunday, Aug. 31.
Specific dates, times and reservations for all shows are available through the box office, 302-227-2270 or at www.ClearSpaceTheatre.org under the heading Purchase Tickets.
