The award-winning Equity professional East Lynne Theater Company's popular Tales of the Victorians returns for its twenty-eighth year!  Take tea at a lovely venue, indulge in homemade tasty treats, and listen to stories by famous American authors like O. Henry, Mary Wilkins Freeman, Mark Twain, and Zora Neale Hurston, read by ELTC performers and friends. Most of the Tales are in Cape May, but as of three years ago, a North Wildwood location has been added.

Performers include Michele LaRue, who tours with several shows including Someone Must Wash the Dishes: An Anti-Suffrage Satire, and whose late husband Warren Kliewer founded ELTC; James Rana, who was recently in the Off-Broadway production of The Government Inspector and wrote a current ELTC production, A Year in the Trenches; Stephanie Garrett, who was in ELTC's Lost on the Natchez Trace and Rain; Lee O'Connor, Sherlock in ELTC's radio-style Sherlock Holmes' Adventures; Suzanne Longacre, who's performed throughout the country and in TV's Guiding Light; and Gayle Stahlhuth, ELTC's artistic director since 1999.

The summer schedule is Thursdays at 4:00, except for Two Scoops and a Story which is on a Tuesday at The Henry Sawyer Inn. Tickets are $12 (paid at the door) and ages 12 and under are welcomed and free, except for Two Scoops, which is $6 to help to cover the cost of the ice cream.
