Oh, Those Kinsey Sicks!
Tickets are now on sale for The Kinsey Sicks: Things You Shouldn’t Say by the hilarious Dragapella® group. The show, at 8 p.m. on July 20 at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center, presents the remarkable true story of four friends from San Francisco who had a life-changing epiphany at a Bette Midler concert. That epiphany led them to form the Kinsey Sicks, in an effort to find joy during the darkest days of the AIDS crisis.
Come join the Kinsey Sicks, America’s favorite Dragapella® beautyshop quartet and laugh along with them. Tickets are available now starting at $35 at camprehoboth.com. It’s the first show in recent memory at CAMP Rehoboth to carry the following warning: Views expressed in the show do not necessarily reflect those of CAMP Rehoboth, the Board, or the staff.
Oh boy. As the Kinsey Sicks say, “if you love Trump, you’ll hate this show.” Get your tickets now! ▼

…and Voices from Stonewall A Theatrical Event at CAMP Rehoboth
On Saturday, June 22, Voices from Stonewall, a moving, fascinating, and entertaining tribute to the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall uprising will be on stage at the CAMP Rehoboth Community Center.
The audience will hear the words of the brave, angry, impetuous drag queens and closeted men and women at the bar that had been raided one time too many; the tales of reporters who witnessed the initial riot and following four-night protest; and the stories of the police officers, neighbors, and passersby who were swept up into history.
The show, conceived and written by Michael Gilles and Fay Jacobs, will feature Michael and Sally Gilles, Eloise Ullman, and others, bringing to life the pioneers who fought back on that terrible night in June a half century ago.
Shows are at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets are only $20 and benefit CAMP Rehoboth. Tickets are available now. ▼
