The award-winning PROOF is a poignant drama about love and reconciliation concerning an enigmatic young woman, her manipulative sister, their brilliant father, and an unexpected suitor as they search for the truth behind a mysterious mathematical proof.

Fool Moon Theatre, founded in 2005 as a nonprofit theatre company, began its five-year residence at the Margate Community Church with its 2006 production of THE FANTASTICKS and ended with the Rodgers and Hammerstein revue, A GRAND NIGHT FOR SINGING. Along the way, there were lots of laughs with such comedies as Neil Simon’s SUNSHINE BOYS, A.R. Gurneys THE DINING ROOM, William Inge’s BUS STOP, the Wrigley Field based-comedy BLEACHER BUMS, and the madcap BEAU JEST.

Fool Moon Theatre’s first two shows were at the now-demolished United Trinity Methodist Church in Ventnor where it opened with the hilarious canine comedy SYLVIA and the sharped-edged one-acts DEATH DEFYING ACTS. Recently Fool Moon Theatre performed at The Gateway Playhouse in Somers Point performing OUR TOWN, ON GOLDEN POND, Neil Simon’s LONDON SUITE, and other American classics.

“We are thrilled to be back at Margate Community Church,” said Fool Moon co-founder and president Pattye Herron. “The congregation is very generous and supportive of live theater.”

“The Margate Community Church is a great supporter of the arts. Fool Moon Theatre’s

shows will bring joy to the community and add greatly to the church’s openness,

inclusivity, and ministry,” said the church’s pastor Reverend Victoria Ney.

The Church has a long history of supporting live theater. In the 1990s, it housed Margate Little Theatre which produced numerous shows including, A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC, PIRATES OF PENZANCE, ARSENIC AND OLD LACE, and SHENANDOAH.

“It’s a homecoming for me,” said Fool Moon’s co-founder Paul Herron who directed and performed in most of the Margate Little Theater shows. “Some of the key people who performed here in the 1990s as back with Fool Moon and ready to put on shows. We’re a little older and wiser but we still love theater.”

A member of Fool Moon’s first production SYLVIA, Pamela Dollak plays a featured role in PROOF. “Pamela is exceptionally talented and is a key member of Fool Moon. We’re so happy she has stayed a member of our group for all these years,” said Pattye Herron. The leading role is played by Kate Read, another Fool Moon Theatre veteran.
