East Lynne Theater Company presents Poe By Candlelight

Just in time for Halloween, East Lynne Theater Company presents “Poe by Candlelight”
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.”
Amanda Brinlee is a recent graduate of Fairleigh Dickinson University where she performed in both new and classic plays. Currently she is ELTC’s production assistant, but has also performed this season, in the company’s virtual reading of “Something to Vote For,” and the live-in-person “Vaudeville Variety” and “Tales in the Backyard.”
Morgan J. Nichols performed in ELTC’s “Arsenic and Old Lace,” “To the Ladies,” “The Butter and Egg Man” and “Berkeley Square.” He’s also recently landed roles in “Blue Bloods,” HBO’s “Vinyl,” and other television shows.
Gayle Stahlhuth, who has been ELTC’s artistic director since 1999, has been highly complimented for both her directing and acting in “The Wall Street Journal,” “Philadelphia Inquirer,” and “The New York Times. She’s also performing in “Christmas with Harte and O. Henry” for the holidays.
Reservations are strongly recommended, and may be purchased through ELTC’s website,, by calling 609-884-5898, or e-mailing
