Fantasticks Comes from NYC to Lewes
This summer, an on-stage musical romance will express the real-life passions of a husband and wife theatre team. Infinity Theatre Company introduces a professional New York City cast to the Rehoboth Beach area to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the longest-running musical in the world, The Fantasticks.
The Fantasticks is a simple yet magical musical about the lost innocence and enduring love between Matt and Luisa, echoing the true adventures of Infinity Theatre Company’s founders, Anna Roberts Ostroff and Alan Ostroff. It is befitting that Anna and Alan are not only producing the musical, but also acting in the play as Matt and Luisa.
In The Fantasticks, there are many obstacles for Matt and Luisa to face: their fathers build a wall between their neighboring houses to keep the young lovers apart, and hire a band of actors to abduct Luisa away from Matt.
The producers bring the Broadway and off-Broadway experience to the local production of The Fantasticks, at the Cape Henlopen High School Theatre June 23-26 and July 1-3 at 8 p.m., and June 27 at 2 and 8 p.m. Reserved seats are $30 and $35. Seniors are $25.
June 26 is CAMP Rehoboth night. Anyone who uses the discount code "CAMP20" gets 20% off any ticket. Visit infinitytheatrecompany.com for tickets.

Breasta Fiesta Helps Fight Breast Cancer
Breasta Fiesta is a fun-fundraiser for Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure (the3day.org). The event will be held at Nourish, 715 Rehoboth Ave Extension, Rehoboth Beach, DE, from 2-4 pm on Saturday, June 12th. There is a $25 minimum donation per ticket; tickets are available at Nourish, CAMP Rehoboth (227-5620), or call Kathy at 302-226-0795. Along with Chef Deberah’s delicious Mexican food and Dogfish Head’s off-centered ales, there will be raffle prizes, contests and education/information by two of Sussex County’s leaders in the fight against breast cancer.
Every year the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure foundation sponsors 3 day, 60 mile walks across the country to “end breast cancer.” Each walker is required to raise $2300 in order to participate. Breasta Fiesta has been created, with the support of Nourish: Specialty Food Market & Catering and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, to raise money so that Team M & M (Meghan Wisnieski and Melanie Pyle) will be able to walk in the Philadelphia 3-Day. Six years ago Melanie’s aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer and within a year, another aunt and her grandmother were also diagnosed. When the 3-Day came to Philadelphia in 2005, Melanie asked her friends if they would walk with her. Meghan was the only friend to volunteer. Meghan had not been directly affected by breast cancer at the time, but wanted to be supportive of Melanie and a cure for breast cancer. Now Meghan says, “This time it’s very different. This time it’s personal. My mom and my Aunt Mooney are not only survivors, but my inspiration.” This will be Melanie and Meghan’s 5th year participating in the 3-Day.
A representative from The Wellness Community will be at Breasta Fiesta to provide information about their professionally led support groups, workshops and classes. The Wellness Community-Delaware (www.wellnessdelaware.org), an affiliate of the Cancer Support Community, is part of an international nonprofit organization that provides support, education and hope to people with cancer and their loved ones. All programs at The Wellness Community are free of charge.
Beebe Medical Center’s Tunnell Cancer Center (www.beebemed.org) is also participating in Breasta Fiesta. Staff from the Center will be available to speak one-on-one about breast health and how early detection saves lives. Through a grant by the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation, the new program Sharing Our Stories, Saving Our Sisters (SOS²), focuses on providing education and no-cost breast cancer screening to women in minority and under-served populations in Sussex County who might otherwise not receive the healthcare that they need. The incidence of breast cancer for all women increases with age and is highest among white women; however, mortality rates are highest among African American and Latina women.
