Why did a man in Pennsylvania create the Red-Headed League in London? Who is the person behind “The Voice” stealing millions in Manhattan? What questions about East Lynne Theater Company’s rich background will be asked at its gala celebrating 35 years of presenting American classics and world premieres?
By attending two November events, all will become clear when East Lynne Theater Company brings back its radio-style productions and its annual fundraising gala.
Many radio shows were performed in front of live audiences while they were sent across the “airways.” ELTC invites you to be part of our radio-style shows on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 6 and 7, with two new mysteries titled “Detectives Holmes and Carter: The Adventures of the Red-Headed League” and “The Voice of Crime.” The same cast of seven performs both shows back-to-back on the same night, going from Sherlock Holmes’ Victorian England to Nick Carter’s Manhattan during World War II.
The location of the shows is the First Presbyterian Church of Cape May, 500 Hughes St. Tickets are $25-$15, and ages 12 and under are free.
On Monday, Nov. 9, ELTC presents “155 in 35: 155 Years of Theater in 35 Years of East Lynne Theater Company.” Aleathea’s Restaurant at the Inn of Cape May, 7 Ocean St., is hosting the gala, which includes dinner, live musical entertainment, scenes from past productions, our popular trivia contest with prizes, a silent auction and the raffle for a Dream Vacation. Cost is $55.
