East Lynne Theater Company to Close TALES OF THE VICTORIANS, 10/12
The final opportunity to attend the award-winning East Lynne Theater Company's "Tales of the Victorians" this season is on Saturday, October 12 at 4:00p.m. at The Henry Sawyer Inn, 722 Columbia Ave. While taking tea and tasting treats at this lovely B&B, professional storyteller and long-time ELTC favorite Stephanie Garrett and artistic director Gaye Stahlhuth will read classic stories from the vast collection of America's rich repertoire, which include works by Edna Ferber, Willa Cather, O. Henry, and Zora Neale Hurston. Cost for this popular pastime is only $10.00, and like other ELTC events, children are always welcome, and, ages 12 and under are free.
Stephanie Garrett began her storytelling career at Historic Cold Spring Village over a dozen years ago where she specialized in early 19th Century Cape May County African American History. She has performed in ELTC's productions of "Christmas in Black and White," "Women and the Vote," "Rain," "The People of Cape May v. Johan Van Buren," and most recently in "Lost on the Natchez Trace." Gayle Stahlhuth, now in her fifteenth year of being artistic director, where she had produced almost 80 different plays and musicals for ELTC, has performed Off-Broadway, and in regional and nationally touring productions, as well as appeared in commercials, television, in films, and on the radio.
Meanwhile, ELTC's mainstage season continues with "The Late Christopher Bean" through Sunday, October 13 at The First Presbyterian Church, 500 Hughes St. in Cape May, where the company is in residence.
