It’s the new millennium, and the girl group that everyone loves is bringing back the sun, fun, and all the great songs they sang down on the boardwalk at the Jersey Shore... all to raise money for the good folks at Sandy Shores RV Resort. In front of a live audience, The Bikinis relive their heyday and beyond, beginning in the summer of ’64, when the group got their name winning the Belmar Beach Talent Contest in their bikinis!

Gerald "Jerry" Peters

Gerald 'Jerry' Peters

Sadly in 2012, we lost Gerald "Jerry" Peters, the longtime president of the Festival Players Guild, (now Canterbury Guild) and production administrator for the Canterbury Summer Theatre. Jerry helped pilot the Guild through 43 years of civic accomplishment, as well as helming the summer theatrical production entity that has given hundreds of young theatre artists from across the nation their first professional jobs.

Michigan City has lost one of its favorite sons, and the legacy of Jerry’s efforts to help his hometown flourish will not soon be forgotten, nor will our memories of his generosity, colorful personality, sense of humor and dedication to the Guild and Canterbury Theatre.

Contributions in Jerry's name may be made to Canterbury Guild, P.O. Box 157, Michigan City, IN 46361.
