East Lynne Theater Company’s 2009 Season Tickets Available


By On Deck Staff

Not sure what to give someone for Christmas? Why not the gift of entertainment with East Lynne Theater Company’s 2009 Season Tickets?
One size fits all and the recipient can choose what days to attend – and even bring friends. Five tickets cost $90 and may be used in any way.
Patrons may see every new production, or bring friends to see one or two shows, use all five for one performance, or give a ticket or two to friends.
Prices in 2009 are $28 for general admission; $23 for senior citizens; and $13 for full-time students. Purchasing Season Tickets is a real savings, and they must be purchased by July 1.
To encourage families to attend, anyone age 12 and under is still free.
The Equity Professional East Lynne Theater Company has its usual season filled with music, a radio show, classic gems and world premieres.
In March and November, ELTC’s popular Sherlock Holmes’ radio-style adventures returns, complete with live sound effects and commercials, just like the Sherlock Holmes’ radio series on NBC that premiered on Oct. 20, 1930.
March 20 and 21 will be the final times to see “Adventure of the Speckled Band,” where the Good Detective and the Good Doctor are pitted against a psychotic villain.
On Nov. 6 and 7, it’s a new radio script: “Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle,” where Holmes and Watson try to discover how a precious blue stone came to be in a goose on Christmas Eve.
From June 17-July 25, the provocative plays of Alice Gerstenberg take the stage in “Alice on the Edge.” Included in this delightful evening is “Overtones,” one of the most talked about plays of the 1915 Broadway season.
Next up is a world premiere adaptation, with music, of one of O. Henry’s most famous tales, “The Ransom of Red Chief,” running from July 29-Sept. 5.
From Sept. 23-Oct. 24, is “The Butter and Egg Man,” by Pulitzer Prize-winner George S. Kaufman. Before Mel Brooks’ “The Producers,” there was Kaufman’s 1925 comedy about two producers who need funding for their Broadway show.
Another world premiere is “Christmas in Black and White,” performing on Nov. 27, 28, Dec. 6, 11 and 12. It’s based on the writings of American authors who wrote about Christmas from the point of view of freed African slaves to newly-arrived immigrants, adapted and performed by two master storytellers, Stephanie Garrett and Gayle Stahlhuth.
To purchase season tickets, send a check to ELTC, 121 Fourth Ave., West Cape May, NJ 08204, or through ELTC’s website at For questions, call 609-884-5898.
ELTC performances will be at the First Presbyterian Church, 500 Hughes St., Cape May, with a Wednesday through Saturday schedule.
ELTC will once again have the Student Summer Theater Workshop in June and July, culminating in a performance of “Hans Brinker.”
Throughout the year, East Lynne Theater Company has shows-on-the-road and educational outreach.
Anyone interested in placing an ad in next season’s playbill or being a Season or Show Sponsor, or volunteering, let the company know.
As a nonprofit cultural organization, tax-deductible donations are always appreciated.
