Cape Thespians to offer "-- When most people come to see a play put on by the Cape Thespi- ans, they probably pay most of their attention to the story and what's happening. However, Cape's plays wouldn't be nearly as enjoyable to watch if it weren't for the people working behind the scenes: the stage crew and the costumes coor- dinators. For the fail play, "A Midsum- mer Night's Dream," there aren't many props, so the stage crew's main task is to transform the back- drop into a forest. Painting the backdrop is a large undertaking, so it's helpful that there is a large stage crew of 13 people for this performance. Junior Tara Arensberg, the head artist, sketched the drawing that is now being painted onto the back- drop. "It's awesome to see my black and white drawing on eight by twelve inch paper turn into a colorful mural," commented Arensberg. The main inspiration for the colors and images on the backdrop of "A Midsummer Seaside Nature Center offers November activities The Seaside Nature Center at Cape Henlopen State Park is open everyday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. from April 1 through Sept. 10.
