Poe by Candlelight
First Presbyterian Church, East Lynne Theater Company, South Jersey
Just in time for Halloween, East Lynne Theater Company presents “Poe by Candlelight” on Saturday, October 23 at 8:00p.m. at the Cape May Presbyterian Church, 500 Hughes Street in Cape May, where the theater is in residence.
Started in 2015, ELTC’s “Poe by Candlelight” continues to be one of the company’s most popular events. This year, stories by the master of the macabre include “Bernice,” “The Oval Portrait,” and “The Tell-Tale Heart,” read by Amanda Brinlee, Morgan J. Nichols, and Gayle Stahlhuth. Due to the pandemic, ELTC will not be serving refreshments in the lounge before the hour-long performance, but will have tasty treats “to go.”
Reservations are strongly recommended, and may be purchased through ELTC’s website, eastlynnetheater.org, by calling 609-884-5898, or e-mailing email@example.com. Tickets are $12 and ages 12 and under are free.
