This one-woman musical drama focuses in on the life of an unconventional and original woman named Lilyan Stratton Corbin. She was an author, actress, and philanthropist who grew up in the remote town of Crisfeld, MD, during the Chesapeake Bay Oyster boom in the late 1800s. After running away from home at age 16, in 1898, Lilyan went from the stage, to the screen, to the page, and later became the namesake for the Crisfeld library.

In August, local favorite Terry M. Isner brings his show “Make America Sweet Again” to the CAMP Rehoboth Community Center. This show is an evolution of Isner’s PEZ series that he describes as “a photographic mash-up of cultural events, politics, shameless product endorsements, and PEZ.” Isner’s work is inspired by music, movies, TV, social events and pop culture. “I love to intertwine the commercial world with graphics, toys, cartoons, fonts, iconic images, colors and shapes for whimsical storytelling,” he said.
