Last year’s “Story Theater” went so well for East Lynne Theater Company’s Summer Student Workshop, that the company is doing it again this year, with different plays. Three are adapted from The Brothers Grimm: “The Master Thief,” “The Golden Goose,” and “The Three Travelers.” “The Witches Curse,” was written by a 15-year-old Louisa May Alcott. This year marks the 150th anniversary of Alcott’s “Little Women.” There’s a lot of fun in these tales as characters go to great lengths to get what they want.
After nine, three-hour sessions, students, ages 10-15, will perform “Story Theater” on Monday, July 1, at 8 p.m. at The First Presbyterian Church, 500 Hughes Street in Cape May, where ELTC is in residence. This popular event, now in its 13th year, is free and for all ages.
The workshop leader is once more Rob LeMaire. This year, he’s assisted by Andrew Lofredo and Jakob Pender. Rob is the assistant director for ELTC’s returning production of “Arsenic and Old Lace,” and also portrays Teddy Brewster. Recently he directed “The Wizard of Oz” at Ocean City High School. Andrew is pursuing a BFA in Musical Theatre at the University of Central Florida and is a very busy production assistant for “Summerland.” Jake was in ELTC’s “Ah, Wilderness!” Artistic director Gayle Stahlhuth and technical director Lee O’Connor are also helping with the production.
Meanwhile, ELTC’s “Summerland,” continues on the mainstage through July 20.
