East Lynne Theater Company (ELTC) is a proven destination for theater lovers who crave the adventure of discovery. By bringing the American Spirit to the stage with its blend of provocative premieres and timeless classics, this award-winning Equity professional theater provides a portal to the past for a better understanding of the present. Founded in 1980, it was the first theater in the country with the unique mission of presenting and preserving America's theatrical heritage, and is named after a popular 19th century American play. In 1996, Ohio State University honored ELTC by asking to house the company's archives at its "Jerome Laurence and Robert E. Lee Theatre Research Institute." In 2009, ELTC received the New Jersey Theatre Alliance's "Achievement of Excellence Award" for "30 years of celebrating America's heritage through productions and educational programs."
ELTC takes pride in providing theater-goers, actors, and directors, alike, the experience of seeing and working on plays by American masters like Rachel Crothers, George S. Kaufman, and Eugene O'Neill, as well as new works based on American literature and history. ELTC's artist-in-residence programs and summer theater workshops teach students acting, playwriting, and production, focusing on American history and literature. The company's touring shows travel throughout the country. During the Cape May Performing Season, the company is in residence at the historic First Presbyterian Church of Cape May, right in the center of town, a block away from the beach.
