On March 13-14, October 30-31 and November 6-7, it’s “Sherlock Holmes Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle” – radio-style.

On May 30, is “A Hundred Thousand Days of Light,” American classics sung by Barbara Quintiliani.

From June 17 – July 25, it’s “Possessing Harriet,” by Kyle Bass, a New Jersey premiere based on a true story. A runaway slave spends time with Suffragist Elizabeth Cady and abolitionist Garret Smith.   

 “Born Yesterday” runs from July 29 – September 5.  Written by Garson Kanin, this 1946 comedy is about a wheeler-dealer who brings his showgirl mistress to Washington.

From September 23 – October 17, is “Why Marry?” a 1918 Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy about two scientists who fall in love, but she doesn’t want to get married for fear it would kill her career. When ELTC produced it in 2006-2007, there were many sold-out houses.

For Halloween, on October 23-24, it’s “Nosferatu,” the silent horror classic, and “Poe by Candlelight.” From November 27 – December 14, it’s “Christmas with Harte and O. Henry.”
