‘Wrinkles, the Musical’ Returns to WHAT

WELLFLEET – The Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater will present a fully staged production of “Wrinkles, the Musical” next month.

The performances run from October 18-27, with shows at 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays. Two preview performances will also be held on October 16 and 17 at 7:30 p.m.

Opening night ticket holders, on the 18th, are invited to a pre-show raw bar with champagne toast, and a post-show reception.

In “Wrinkles, the Musical,” a group of older women from diverse backgrounds share their stories, joys, sadness, strengths, weaknesses, and a joint, as they come together to create an original musical review for their retirement community.

Throughout the rehearsal process they grow closer and bond over their commonalities, breaking down the cultural taboos surrounding the aging process.

The show honors those who live authentically, are brave and fearless storytellers, and are ready to reclaim their narrative in order to live life to its fullest.

WHAT first hosted “Wrinkles” as a work in progress in 2010, presented by TIDES Dance Company. In 2017 and 2018, the play enjoyed sell-out shows at Cape Cod Theater Company before returning to WHAT for development workshops – both in Wellfleet last spring and in New York earlier this year.

“WHAT is proud to welcome the return of ‘Wrinkles, the Musical,’ reaffirming our commitment to the development of new work, the celebration of local voices, and the theater artists who call Cape Cod home,” said Christopher Ostrom, the artistic director of WHAT.

“As we end our 35th Anniversary year, it feels especially fitting to offer a ‘home grown’ production with such strong local roots.”

The book and lyrics are by Wilderness Sarchild and Naomi Turner.

Tickets are $25-$40, with discounts available for students and seniors. To purchase tickets, visit www.what.org or call 508-349-9428.
