POE BY CANDLELIGHT is the final "Tales of the Victorians" performance for 2020.  Like other "Tales" that take place at different venues throughout the summer, this features light refreshments and stories read by ELTC actors. Refreshments will be served in the hospitality room before the hour-long performance.  

Stay tuned for who will be performing and which stories they will tell!  Last years' readers were Sydia Cedeño, Lee O'Connor, and Gayle Stahlhuth.  

Sydia Cedeño was a reader for the "All Write" Selected Shorts program with Symphony Space in NYC for many years, recorded for NPR.  She received the Outstanding Individual Performance Award 2018 at the New York Musical Festival at Playwrights Horizon for her work in the world premiere of "Errol and Fidel." For ELTC, she performed in “Sherlock Holmes Adventure of the Speckled Band.”  

Lee O'Connor, also ELTC's technical director, is a favorite reader for "Tales," and has portrayed Sherlock Holmes since ELTC began producing radio-style Holmes' adventures in 2002.

Gayle Stahlhuth, who has been ELTC's artistic director since 1999, was highly complimented for her directing and portrayal of Martha in ELTC's "Arsenic and old Lace" in Terry Teachout's review in "The Wall Street Journal." She's also performing in "The Great Tree and Other Tales by Zona Gale” for the holidays.
