We have enjoyed excellent performances by this professional theater for quite a few years visiting Cape May in the summer. Gail Stahlhuth, artistic director and her husband Lee O'Conner, stage director always provide excellent productions for the entire family.

Rodgers Romance is a delightful evening of fine music, sung beautifully. Add to that, a trivia contest about the origin of the songs. Tons of fun.

What a special evening. The room was filled with wonderous songs performed by four outstanding young voices. We were transported back to a different time and place. He genius of words and the voices filled not only our ears but our souls. Outstanding entertainment not to be missed

We went to see the opening of Rogers' Romance, a musical revue of the music of Richard Rodgers with Lorenz Hart as well as Oscar Hammerstein, II. We expected it to be a pleasant evening but nothing special. It turned out to be such a delightful evening we didn't want it to end. It an enjoyable and joyful celebration of... More

My husband and I began our recent winter holiday weekend in Cape May with a delightful performance of The Life and Times of Santa Claus at the East Lynne Theater. Gayle Stahlhuth's artful story-telling of L.Frank Baum's classic tale was mesmerizing. We look forward to including other East Lynne Theater productions in future visits to Cape May.

Frank Baum's The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus was adapted for the stage and performed by Gayle Stahlhuth. A delightful tale which tells the origins of Santa Claus. Having... More

I had the pleasure of seeing Strictly Dishonorable recently at ELTC. It was a fantastic production with so many strong performances and excellent direction. The play was very engaging and kept us on the edge of our seats. Very funny.. the actors had great timing and it was also quite touching. The costuming was perfect and the set was resourceful...

We annually go to the Cape once a year and always take in a East Lynne production. Its production is in a very pretty old church and scenery is very very minimal. Acting is always very good. Highly recommend it.

My wife and I saw Huckleberry Finn last night performed by the East Lynne Theater Co., in Cape May, NJ, and it was a thoroughly enjoyable show. James Rana did a superb job in adapting Mark Twain's novel it for the stage - and what an amazing cast! There are some great character actors in the ensemble. Thomas Raniszewski is... More

Take the time to take in a show at the East Lynne Theater Company during your visit to Cape May! The Victorian experience offers the perfect topper following a day at the beach and delicious Cape May dinner.
