Jersey Shore, the Opera?

No, not starring Snookie, though surely a Snooki opera can't be far behind. And if anyone can do it, it seems this opera company can. The production, by the Squonk Opera company, is slated for April 9th at the Algonquin Arts Theatre in Manasquan. Squonk is a company that specializes in these sorts of Your Hometown: the opera productions, (though Algonquin is more cautiously calling it a "multimedia musical adventure.") Meanwhile, Squonk, which looks like scrambled up Snooki anyway, is seeking your photos and video to use in the production. Specifically: "footage or stills from Highlands in the North to Seaside in the South and as far west as Freehold or Howell. Aerial footage is strongly desired. "  Materials should be sent to Algonquin Arts Theatre, Attn Diane Raver, 173 Main Street, Manasquan, NJ 08736. Contact for more info. The deadline to submit materials is January 25th, 2011.
