East Lynne Theater Company Presents An ASL Performance Of Alice on the Edge 7/17


On Friday, July 17 at 8:30p.m., there will be an American Sign Language Interpretation of the delightfully witty "Alice on The Edge" produced by the East Lynne Theater Company, recently voted one of the Top Two Equity theaters in the state in the Discover Jersey Arts' "People's Choice Awards." Critics and audiences alike are praising the ensemble work of the cast of five in these four delicious one-acts by cutting-edge playwright Alice Gerstenberg. SuzAnne Dawson, Shelley McPherson, Alison J. Murphy, Mark Edward Lang, and Gayle Stahlhuth perform under the skillful direction of Karen Case Cook.

The theatrical ASL interpreters are Kathy Filippo and Gina Lanza, who have performed many times for ELTC. The process involves them seeing the production at least once, plus going over the script several times to figure out who will interpret which roles, and in many cases, come up with signage for unusual names and words.

Tickets are $28 general admission; $23 for seniors and those with disabilities and their

support companions; and $13 for full-time students. Children ages 12 and under are always

free. The location is The First Presbyterian Church, 500 Hughes St., Cape May, where The company is in residence. "Alice on The Edge" runs every Wednesday through Saturday through July 25 only. For information and reservations, call 609-884-5898 or visit To make a reservation using a credit card, call 866-280-9211.

The twentieth year of "Tales of the Victorians," the popular reading series, continues on Thursdays at 4:00p.m., with the next two locations: July 9 at The Dormer House, 800 Columbia Ave., and July 16 at The Fairthorne, 111 Ocean St. Tickets are only $10 and ages 12 and under are free.

The Dinner-and-an-ELTC-Show-Combo is at the following restaurants: Aleathea's, 410 Bank Street, Frescos, The Washington Inn, The Merion Inn, and the Church of the Advent.

The production of "Alice on The Edge" would not be possible without season sponsors Curran Investment Management, Aleathea's Restaurant, La Mer Beachfront Inn, and funding received through a grant from the New Jersey Department of State, Division of Travel and Tourism, as well as this show's sponsor, The Henry Sawyer Inn, and the generosity of many patrons.
