ASLCape May Stage has scheduled multiple performances during the season to encourage and facilitate sign language interpreted performances for people who are Deaf. The primary aim is to ensure that all Deaf people have access to a broad range of theatre through the provision of high quality ASL (American Sign Language) interpreted performances. An ASL interpreted performance is, in basic terms, a performance during which the vocal line is interpreted into sign language. The impetus behind these scheduled performances has evolved out of a need not only to cater for Deaf audiences, but also for the organization to be sensitive to and better educated about the issues and practice of providing ASL interpreted performances.

Regular ticket prices: $35 adults, $30 seniors (62+), students $12.50 

Half price admission to Deaf patrons. Enter code ASL50 to redeem online or over the phone when ordering tickets.


Cape May Stage is proud to offer a discounted ticket to all men and women who currently serve the nation and are on active duty.

Reservations are required and must be made directly through the box office by calling (609) 884-1341.
