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 diane@algonquinarts.org for more info. The deadline to submit materials is January 25th, 2011. In any case, here's some rare footage of Snooki singing:

About this blog

Inquirer staff writer Amy S. Rosenberg has covered Philly police, city neighborhoods, Ed Rendell as mayor, the Jersey shore, Atlantic City, Miss America and the psychology of Eagles fans. She moved to Ventnor on July 3, 1995, which makes her a local, but not really.

Inquirer Staff Writer Jacqueline L. Urgo has spent every summer of her life at the Jersey Shore, and has lived there year-round for nearly 30 years, even fulfilling one of her bucket list dreams by once living in a house by the sea.

Since 1990, she has covered the waterfront for The Inquirer — from the Atlantic to the Delaware Bay shore — and some of the mainland in between. Along the way, she amassed an encyclopedic knowledge of this tear-it-down-and-build-it-back-up region, delving into the history and the hype of a place with a lot of unexpected stories to tell.
