ELTC’s Student Workshop Production of “Dracula’s Guests” – Free Admission

A family visiting Munich decides to roam the German countryside during Walpurgis Nacht, when witches come out and anything can happen. They encounter a band of gypsies and others who warn them that they should be fearful, but they pay no heed. What follows is spooky and fun for the whole family.

East Lynne Theater Company’s much anticipated 10th Annual Student Workshop is back!

After 30 hours of theater games and rehearsal, nine students will perform “Dracula’s Guests,” based on a Bram Stoker story, at The First Presbyterian Church of Cape May, 500 Hughes Street. The date is Tuesday, July 5 at 8 p.m. Admission is free and families are welcome.

Directing the production is Sally Bingham, who also adapted “Dracula’s Guests.” She just completed her fourth year as ELTC’s artist-in-residence for the Wildwood after-school program, and has headed up the Student Workshop for the last three years. Assisting is Bobby LeMaire, ELTC’s production assistant, who attends University of the Arts in Philadelphia, and was in ELTC’s “Ransom of Red Chief” in 2009. Also on hand will be ELTC’s artistic director Gayle Stahlhuth and technical director Lee O’Connor.

Meanwhile, “Rodgers’ Romance,” created and directed by David-Michael Kenney, “DMK,” with musical director Charles Gilbert and four performers singing the tunes of Rodgers, Hart and Hammerstein, continues on ELTC’s mainstage through July 23, every Wednesday through Saturday at 8:30 p.m.
