YULETIDE TALES is a compilation of stories and songs for the holiday, filmed where East Lynne Theater Company performs, in the Cape May Presbyterian Church in Cape May, NJ. It premieres on YouTube at https://tinyurl.com/ELTC-YuletideTales on Friday, December 4 at 8:00PM ET, and is available through December 30. It’s a treat for the whole family – and it’s free because of funding through New Jersey Theatre Alliance’s “Stages Festival 2020.”

There’s nothing like watching a live performance, but the fun thing about watching a show at home is that viewers can pause, go backwards, forwards, and even use Closed Caption.

The storytellers have performed for ELTC before, and the musicians play in many Cape May venues. Stephanie Garrett reads “Mirama’s Christmas Test” by A. Thomas Fortune, James Rana’s story is “Letter from Santa Claus” by Mark Twain, Gayle Stahlhuth’s tale is “A Great Tree” by Zona Gale, and Susan Tischler tells “Old Applejoy’s Ghost” by Frank R. Stockton. Intertwined with the tales are songs including “Jingle Bells,” “Winter Wonderland,” “I’ll be Home for Christmas,” and more, sung by the Honeyhawks (Lelah and Jay Eppenbach), Will and Holly Knapp, and Barry Tischler with Tom Naglee on the fiddle.  It’s a treat for the whole family – and it’s free because its funded through New Jersey Theatre Alliance’s “Stages Festival 2020.”

This production is dedicated to all of those in the medical profession, from those working diligently to find a vaccine, to those working tirelessly in hospitals.  Thank you!
