|Don't Miss the Vagina Monologues
The Vagina Monologues are coming back to Rehoboth August 12 and 13.
The show returns to Rehoboth with the same performers, for three shows only at the top of the Henlopen Hotel, with a portion of the proceeds going to the CAMP Rehoboth Founder's Circle.
The Friday, Aug. 12 performance is sold-out. Limited tickets are still available for the Saturday, Aug. 13 matinee at 4 p.m. and the evening performance at 8 p.m., but don't wait too long. The three actresses, Jane Bruns, Stacey Fearheiley and Eloise Ullman, will be back for an evening of laughter and tears in Eve Ensler's award winning play.
Even if you have seen another production of the show, you should check out what these three actresses do with the script. "It would be impossible to say which woman stole the show," says Cape Gazette columnist Bridin Reynolds. "For two hours they made magic out of this play...."
The Vagina Monologues grew out of interviews the author had with more than three hundred women ages six to seventy-six. The monologues are by turns inspiring, hilarious, moving and thought-provoking. The play has played to sold out houses all over the world.
Tickets are limited, as the show is being presented in the intimate setting of a Henlopen Hotel banquet room. Tickets are $20 each, Call CAMP Rehoboth at 227-5620 for reservations.
Along with the performances, Salero Restaurant has planned a pre-show dinner special. Call Salero directly at 227-8630 if you would like to have reservations for the special pre-show dinner.
Gather your friends, family members (including the men!), who missed the show last winter, but heard so much about it, and plan to see The Vagina Monologues.
Tickets are available by calling CAMP Rehoboth at 302-227-5620.
NYC Artist Kurt Walters at Nassau Vineyards
Nassau Valley Vineyard is proud to present the paintings of New York City artist Kurt Walters. The show, entitled Unfinished Business, will hang from August 5-30.
Kurt continues the classical painting tradition, not often seen today: a modern portrait painter. He received formal training at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland.

In 2004 he was commissioned to create 36 illustrations for Chief Justice, a book on Supreme Court justice John Marshall, which will be released by Mondo Publishing in 2006.
He was exhibited in the group show Schock und Schpfung in Munich Germany. His work was also featured in solo shows at Stadt Caf Freising and Caf am Wiener Platz in Munich. He has done installations at both The Roxy and The Sound Factory in New York City and has shown in exhibition in Buffalo and Provincetown, Massachusetts.

Gay Marine Porn Star at Lambda Rising
Rich Merritt will discuss his autobiography, Secrets of a Gay Marine Porn Star during an appearance at Lambda Rising Bookstore Sunday, August 14, at 2:30 p.m.
Merritt was a boy who never listened to pop music, never cursed, and didn't have his first drink until he was 18. Then he exploded into a life of drugs, alcohol, promiscuity, prostitution, and pornography as a "gay Marine porn star." His autobiography is a triumphant story of self-forgiveness and identity, of a man who refused to allow himself to be defined by the standards or anyone elsegay or straight.
All author appearances at Lambda Rising are free and open to the public. The bookstore is located at 39 Baltimore Ave in Rehoboth. For further information, call 302-227-6969.
