Live theatre at the beach continues through August

August 9, 2019

Clear Space Theatre’s summer repertory season offers something sure to please everyone.

“Mamma Mia!” sells out almost every performance. “Hello, Dolly!” stars Clear Space favorites Lorraine Steinhoff and Dan Carney. “The Wedding Singer” features Clear Space newcomers Brody Grant and Jana Jackson.

Jackson said, “This experience is challenging me in so many ways; I can’t wait to see the actor, singer and dancer I become by the end of the summer. Every challenge is an opportunity to succeed. Clear Space sets the bar high for its actors, but even though I’m exhausted, I’ve never been more proud!”

Wesley Paulson, Clear Space executive director, said, “I’m excited to share that ‘Mamma Mia!’ is setting new box office records for Clear Space. It runs in rotation with the two other great musicals we’re offering this summer: ‘Hello, Dolly!’ and ‘The Wedding Singer.’ In addition, Delaware Comedy Theatre is presenting Late-R Night improv on select Saturday evenings. And finally, our Spotlight on Young Performers Ensemble is presenting Summer Children’s Theatre productions of “Aladdin’ and ‘Rapunzel.’ There truly is something for everyone this summer.”

Carl Schloegel, Clear Space board chair, said “What a season! We do indeed have something for everyone – great shows, great audiences, and the perfect place to enjoy it all – the beach! Clear Space’s vision is to be a leader in the vibrant performing arts community of southern Delaware. Enjoy the show!”

Summer rep performances rotate among the three musicals with performances Monday to Saturday through the last week of August. Shows begin at 7:30 p.m. For more information or to purchase tickets, go to or call 302-227-2270.
