ELTC’s Masked Gala and Holmes and Carter Radio-style

What questions about horror films will be asked on Halloween? Why did a man in Pennsylvania create The Red-Headed League in London? Who is the person behind “The Voice” stealing millions in Manhattan?

By attending two events, all becomes clear when East Lynne Theater Company presents its annual fundraising gala and radio-style productions.

On Monday, October 31, its “A Masked Gala” at Aleathea’s at the Inn of Cape May, 7 Ocean Street. The theme is spooky and costumes are encouraged. Entertainment includes scenes from horror films performed by James Rana, Gayle Stahlhuth, and Lee O’Connor. Live music is provided by Chris Sooy and Lew London.

The evening begins at 5:30p.m. with hors d’oeuvres, followed by dinner, entertainment, and a short trivia competition. There’s also a silent auction which includes trips to Philadelphia and NYC, and a raffle for a Dream Vacation. Tickets are $60 and all proceeds go to the nonprofit ELTC.

On Friday and Saturday, November 4 and 5 at 8:00p.m., its ELTC’s vintage radio-style shows with live sound effects, commercials, and two mysteries under the title “Detectives Holmes and Carter: “The Adventures of the Red-Headed League” and “The Voice of Crime.” The same cast of seven perform both shows back-to-back on the same night, going from Sherlock Holmes’ Victorian England to Nick Carter’s Manhattan during World War II. Location is The First Presbyterian Church of Cape May, 500 Hughes Street. Tickets: $27, $17, and ages 12 and under free.
