Any progressive theater-goer worth his weight in playbills can’t miss City Theater Company, Delaware’s choice for fun and racy off-Broadway performances. The company performs at OperaDelaware Studios (4 S. Poplar St., Wilmington, 220-8285). This month it will present William Finn’s Tony Award-winning comedy “Falsettos.”
Rehoboth’s vibrant arts district comes to a crescendo at the Rehoboth Beach Theatre of the Arts (20 Baltimore Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 227-9310), which houses the Gallery C showcase of art, plus choral performances, murder mysteries and Cinema Cabaret. On the first Friday of every month the theater and in-house Ovations Restaurant combine to bring you a three-course dinner and a movie.
Get your dinner and a show all in one place at The New Candlelight Theatre (2208 Millers Road, Ardentown, 475-2313), where you and your date can sip on red Zin and nosh on dessert from Cakes by Kim while unleashing your inner-Elvis. This summer’s production of “All Shook Up” is likely to get a few hips gyrating.
Something a Little Different, Part I
How do you look in a crash helmet? Mid-Atlantic Grand Prix (4060 N. Dupont Hwy., New Castle, 656-5278) makes for an exhilarating date inside 6.5-horsepower go-karts maneuvering hairpin turns and speedy straightaways. A $20 arrive-and-drive option is best for drop-ins.
Cool off and have fun at Jungle Jim’s (8 Country Club Road, Rehoboth Beach, 227-8444). Splash in the water park, race in go-karts, putt at the mini-golf or swing at the batting cages, and more. Or drop off the kids in the lazy river, then spend the day basking in the sun—just the two of you.
Funland (6 Delaware Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 227-1921) has for generations entertained folks of all ages with spinning daisies, swaying Viking ships and galloping plastic horses. There’s never a shortage of things to do or play or eat on the boardwalk.
Going to the next level? Working out your trust issues? Belay your way to the Delaware Rock Gym (520 Carson Drive, Bear, 838-5850), the state’s only indoor rock gym. Whether you’re looking for a climbing partner or a life partner, you’re likely to find something interesting among the 11,300-square-feet of climbing surface.
Get down with some glow bowling on Friday nights at Bowlerama (3031 New Castle Ave., New Castle, 654-0263). If the freakadelic display of black lights, laser shows and glow-in-the-dark bowling balls is too much for you, there are nightly specials on regular bowling, too. Afterward, head to attached Keglers Pub and Sports Bar for a drink, or the Spare Rib Xpress for a bite.
