Today we learned of the death of Roy Baker, a treasure to WCFA and the entire Cape May music community.

For decades, Roy was a major figure in the Cape May music scene. For over eight years, his program “Open Mic,” which he created and co-hosted with Liz Shay and Tom Nagley, Jr., has been one of the cornerstones of WCFA.  “Open Mic” provided the first broadcast opportunity for many local musicians and performers. He was one of WCFA’s pioneers, and his contributions to WCFA were critical in creating the music and arts culture that the station continues to foster.

Roy’s talent, his voice, his playing, and his love and respect for music and musicians in Cape May will be greatly missed.

REV Theatre Company returns to the Physick Estate for the fourth year with an exciting musical production in partnership with the Mid Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities.

REV’s 1940s Cabaret is a great big piece of all-American apple pie!  It’s a happy, heady hit parade of musical nostalgia aimed straight for your heart.  Based on the 1940’s sensational song stylings and best-selling recordings of Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters, and the Cabaret features such enduring, endearing classics as Bei Mir Bist Du Schon, Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree, Mairzy Doats and Rum and Coca Cola, among many, many equally marvelous more.

4 performers will recreate and recharge the marvelous harmonies, rhythms and dynamic songs and choreography of the original performers. REV’s cabaret will share the exuberance and ebullience with audiences who are familiar with these songs/performers, and will introduce this unique and irresistible musical experience to new audiences of all ages.

Come join us and let REV Theatre Company renew your romance with these terrific, toe-tapping, time-tripping tunes…or fall in love with them for the very first time!
