East Lynne Theater Company Suffers Devastating Loss

East Lynne Theater Company Suffers Loss

From the Board of Trustees of East Lynne Theater Company.

As many of you already know, the West Cape May office of East Lynne Theater Company, was destroyed in a fire early last evening. The house was also the summer home of our artistic director and her husband and served as an overflow for accommodating actors. No-one was injured.

We thank you for the many calls and texts we have been receiving. Each person wants to know what they can do to help. With our season scheduled to begin in a matter of weeks, the help needed is as follows:

1. East Lynne needs office space immediately. A shared space in someone’s existing business or office, a spare room in someone’s home. You get the idea.

2. East Lynne needs accommodations for actors this season. We do have a cast house which accommodates about 4 actors but we no longer have the overflow space that the West Cape May house provided. A spare bedroom in the area that someone would like to offer or rent in hosting an actor during the run of a show would be perfect.

3. Seasonal accommodations for our artistic director and her husband, who is our stage manager. Anyone have an efficiency, apartment, small cottage to rent? Perhaps a Realtor can assist us in a search?

Please message us via Facebook private message or contact us via our President’s personal email star19records@aol.com If you can help.

Please limit post comments and messages to that which is a direct solution to our current needs. Expressions of support are appreciated and needed but we can only field messages that pertain to a direct solution. If anyone wants to help, it’s action that is needed.

Our season and company’s future depends on finding these solutions in the next few days.

East Lynne Theater Co.

    Shared on Cool Cape May. I wish there was more I could do. Gayle, Lee, and the entire ELTC will remain in my prayers.
