|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 8:00 pm, repeating indefinitely

American classic Christmas stories adapted and performed by Gayle Stahlhuth presented by East Lynne Theatre Company – Cape May, NJ

Gayle Stahlhuth adapted stories by this Pulitzer Prize-winner, and performs them as Calliope Marsh, Gale’s wonderfully fictional storyteller who lived in Friendship Village, Wisconsin.  In  “Human,” while at the post office, she discovers that a seven-year-old boy doesn’t have the money to visit his mother who’s in a hospital in another town.  In “The Great Tree,” she’s determined to see the tree in the center of town lit with electric lights for Christmas Eve. All of the stories are taken from her books Friendship Village (1908) and Neighborhood Stories (1914).  Gale adapted her novel, Miss Lulu Bett, for the theatre, for which she received the Pulitzer Prize in 1921 when it was on Broadway.
