East Lynne Theater Company Continues To Present Live and Virtual Events

originally published: 07/29/2020

East Lynne Theater Company Continues To Present Live and Virtual Events(CAPE MAY, NJ) -- "Tales of the Victorians" continues every Thursday from 4:00pm – 4:45pm, produced by the Equity professional East Lynne Theater Company.  Usually, "Tales," now in its 31st year, would be presented on porches of B&Bs and in tea shops, but this year, these performances are in a backyard where an audience of 20 can be socially distanced, and performers are using microphones.  

Every week, it’s a different reading.  Suzanne Dawson presents several monologues by the famous writer and actor Ruth Draper on August 6.  Dawson first performed an evening of Draper’s one-acts with Karen Case Cook, directed by Stahlhuth, in 2012. Most recently, Dawson and Stahlhuth portrayed the Brewster sisters in ELTC's "Arsenic and Old Lace."  

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of science fiction writer, Isaac Asimov (1920-1992).  To celebrate, Suzanne Longacre, a favorite "Tales" performer, will read two of his classics on August 13: "The Monkey's Finger" and "​Each an Explorer."

Next up, on August 20, is "Meet the Harrisons," performed by Mal and Dottie Knapp.  Benjamin Harrison (1833-1901) served as a Colonel in the Union army and was the 23rd President of the United States. His wife, Caroline (1832-1892) helped found the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and helped raise funds for the Johns Hopkins University Medical School on condition that it admit women.    

The only way to find out the Cape May location for "Tales of the Victorians," is to make a reservation by calling 609-884-5898 or e-mailing eastlynneco@aol.com.  The cost is a minimum donation of $5.00, paid with cash, at the door.  As usual at ELTC, ages 12 and under are free.
