East Lynne Theater Company's producing artistic director, Gayle Stahlhuth, began performing her own one-person plays in 1981 at venues including Chatauquas throughout the country and The Smithsonian Institution. Since 2006, she has performed Christmas stories in Cape May based on works by L. Frank Baum, Mary Wilkins Freeman, Mark Twain, Edward Everett Hale, Louisa May Alcott, and more. In each show, Stahlhuth interprets over thirty-some characters in which the shrug of a shoulder, the flick of a wrist, and a change in her voice, brings a character to life. For many patrons, these original performances are part of their holiday tradition.
She's not selected the stories she's committing to memory and performing for 2022, but she will! Stay Tuned!
