EXIT 82 CELEBRATING 10 YEARS

EXIT 82 THEATRE PRESENTS THE DROWSY CHAPERONE

Exit 82 Theatre Company opens the Exit 82 Studio Theater on Main Street in Toms River on July 6, 2018 with the company’s revival of the Tony Award winning musical, The Drowsy Chaperone. The space offers a unique, intimate theater experience for its viewers. It is also BYOB for patrons over the age of 21.

“Our hope is for the Exit 82 Studio Theater to become a staple of our community and give a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘community theater,'” says Founder and Executive Producer, Keely Davenport. “We want the Exit 82 Studio Theater to be a place for everyone in our community to not only be entertained but join us to be creative and feel accepted.”

The Drowsy Chaperone features one show-stopping song and dance number after another. In addition, it won five Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score.Taking place in a New York apartment, a man takes us through his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and The Drowsy Chaperone begins as the man in the chair looks on.

The New York Magazine hails it as “The Perfect Broadway Musical.” The Drowsy Chaperone is a masterful meta-musical, poking fun at all the tropes that characterize the musical theater genre. Furthermore, “It takes you to another world and it gives you a tune to carry in your head.”

The Drowsy Chaperone runs every weekend in July. This includes Fridays and Saturdays at 8p.m. and Sundays at 2p.m. Tickets are general admission and are $25 for adults and $23 for seniors. Group rates and ADA seating are also available. The Exit 82 Studio Theater is located at 73 Main Street, Toms River, NJ. Tickets on sale now at www.exit82theatre.com.

Kelly Wynne is Coming to Nordstrom

The newly imposed trend of clear handbags for sports fans and music-lovers is finally hitting the shelves. The designer announced that Nordstrom will be selling Kelly Wynne handbags beginning late July. It is currently the only clear handbag the retailer is carrying for fashionistas.

Kelly Wynne recently released the first ever backpack for the brand. It is clear with a removable flap that allows it to transition into a tote for easier access through security.

In addition, the brand offers customization for their clear handbags, so customers can purchase their team colors. Shoppers can choose from eight python prints including: black/grey and white, blue, navy, purple, red/navy, crimson/maroon, green, and orange.

“As a personal shopper of Nordstrom, it’s surreal to see my bags now carried here,” said Kelly Wynne Ferguson, CEO of Kelly Wynne. “We are excited for this new partnership and honored to be Nordstrom’s premiere choice for their customers for clear handbags. This opens up new distribution channels for our brand with one of the largest and most reputable retailers. We look forward to working with Nordstrom and know that our game day bags offer a ‘wynne-wynne’ opportunity.”

Looking ahead, Kelly Wynne will be launching her “Mirage” Fall collection this August that is inspired by the desert. It also has a deeper theme that calls out the facade many people live behind in today’s online world. Furthermore, the brand will offer over 50 new handbags with various python prints, all inspired by being authentic and being comfortable in one’s own skin.
