Cape Henlopen Lighthouse - Beacon, Attraction and Icon
Rehoboth Beach, Delaware – Opening on May 27, 2022, a new exhibit at the Rehoboth Beach Museum will examine the historic, artistic and symbolic legacy of the Cape Henlopen Lighthouse. Although 96 years have passed since the tower fell to the beach, it still holds an important place in the hearts and minds of local residents and is one of the most popular symbols of Delaware’s coastal community. Drawing on official records, newspaper accounts, oral histories and a wealth of photographic materials, the exhibit will outline the history of the lighthouse from its colonial origins in 1765 to its collapse in 1926. Other parts of the exhibit will highlight the lighthouse as an attraction for tourists and locals, its popularity as a subject of artists, and its continuing use as an iconic symbol. The exhibit also will feature artifacts retrieved from the lighthouse ruins, a 6’ tall model that once belonged to noted artist Andrew Wyeth, and paintings by local artist Ethel Pennewill Brown Leach.

“Cape Henlopen Lighthouse - Beacon, Attraction and Icon” will be on display through September 5, 2022 at the Rehoboth Beach Museum. The museum is located at 511 Rehoboth Avenue, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Summer hours beginning Memorial Day Weekend are Monday through Friday, 9:00 am to 3:00 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 9:00 to 1:00 p.m. The museum is handicap accessible.

CAMP Rehoboth theatre season to open June 23
The CAMP Rehoboth Theatre Company announced its 2022-23 season, which is set to include its most experimental and unique productions yet.

This season will center on LGBTQ stories and further CAMP Rehoboth’s mission to bring arts to the community. All shows will be directed by Russell Stiles.

The first production will be “An Evening with F.J. Hartland,” two one-act comedies set outdoors in the CAMP Rehoboth Courtyard, weather permitting. Performances will move to the Elkins-Archibald Atrium if necessary. Scheduled for June Thursday to Saturday, June 23 to 25, this show is sure to be one of CAMP’s most innovative productions yet.

The first one-act show, “Auto-Erotic Misadventure,” follows three roommates who confront the confusion of living together. Cliff is into macrame, Brandon is a D.C. call boy, and Norma just wants to be held. Drama and hilarity ensue.

The second one-act show, “Ponce de Leon is Dead,” follows another entwined trio. Giselle is a rich Florida widow looking for companionship. J.D. is a poor illegal male stripper, and Vaughn, Giselle’s hardworking CEO son, is trying to protect the family fortune. The comic pursuit of love is never-ending.

The second production of the year will be “Five Lesbians Eating a Quiche” by Andrew Hobgood and Evan Linder. It’s 1956 and the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein are having their annual quiche breakfast. As the assembled “widows” await the announcement of the society's prize-winning quiche, the atomic bomb sirens sound. Winner of the 2012 NYC International Fringe Festival as Best Overall Production, “Five Lesbians Eating A Quiche” is a tasty recipe of hysterical laughs, sexual innuendoes, unsuccessful repressions and delicious discoveries.

Show dates are Thursday and Friday, Sept. 29 and 30, and Saturday, Oct. 1, in the Elkins-Archibald Atrium.

Finally, in February 2023, CAMP Rehoboth will present “Burgerz,” a one-person show by Travis Alabanza. After transphobic slurs – and a hamburger – are thrown at theatre artist Travis Alabanza, a newfound passion is ignited. They become obsessed with hamburgers: how they are made, how they feel and smell, how they travel through the air, how the mayonnaise feels on the skin.

Rehoboth Beach Museum Starts Fund Raising Campaign for Dolle’s Sign Placement
Rehoboth Beach - As has been reported by many news outlets, Rehoboth Beach’s iconic Dolle’s sign recently had to be removed from its long-time location at the boardwalk. The Rehoboth Beach Museum is pleased to announce that it will be the new location of the popular Dolle’s sign and is asking the public for help in relocating the sign. The cost of relocating the sign to the Museum is $35,000. Thanks to some generous donors, the museum already has half of the funds in hand, but needs the public’s help raising the rest of the money to make the project a reality. Members of the public who would like to make a donation can go to www.rehobothbeachmuseum.org  and click on the link provided on the web page, or mail a check to the Rehoboth Beach Museum at 511 Rehoboth Avenue, Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971.

Museum director Nancy Alexander said, “Whether members of the public are looking forward to a photo op under the sign or just want to visit a familiar sight, we invite everyone to join in on the fun of preserving one of our town’s famous landmarks, and we’ll see everyone at the Rehoboth Beach Museum.”

Rehoboth Beach recognized again as a Tree City USA
For the 31st time, Rehoboth Beach has earned recognition from the Arbor Day Foundation as a Tree City USA. Also, the city has once again received the foundation’s Growth Award for continuous improvement to its urban forestry program.

“These national recognitions from the Arbor Day Foundation are perennial in Rehoboth Beach, but that doesn’t mean that we take them – or our trees – for granted,” said Arborist Liz Lingo in a prepared statement. “The city’s commitment to tree canopy preservation, maintenance and planting are critical to safeguarding Rehoboth’s wooded seaside character, which is so highly valued by our residents and visitors.”

Rehoboth is one of 3,600 communities across the country that qualify for Tree City USA designation by meeting four program requirements: having a tree board or department, a tree-care ordinance, an annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capita, and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation. The Growth Award recognizes communities that demonstrate year-over-year increasing levels of tree care and community engagement.

Museum Director Nancy Alexander said, “We want to encourage more vacationers and residents alike to make visiting - and revisiting - the museum a must-do activity when they are downtown, and we think a no-charge admission policy will help achieve that goal”. Summer hours for the Rehoboth Beach Museum are Monday-Friday, 10 am to 4 pm, and Saturday and Sunday, 11 am to 3 pm. Starting November 1, the museum will be closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Monday, Thursday and Friday- hours will be 10am-4pm and Saturday and Sunday-11am-3pm. Click here for more information.
