Military and other savings at East Lynne Theater Company

(CAPE MAY, NJ) -- The award-winning Equity professional East Lynne Theater Company continues to offer savings to its patrons with dinner and B&B combinations and online ticket services.  Also, for the last ten years, those actively serving in the military, have been, and still are, admitted for free. 

     There are four restaurants that partner with ELTC, and patrons make reservations by calling the restaurants and asking for the ELTC dinner/show combination. At Aleathea's Restaurant, total amount is $47.00 for dinner and a ticket; at 410 Bank Street and Frescos, patrons pay $15 for a ticket along with dinner; and at The Washington Inn, the ticket price is $10 plus the price of the meal.

     The two bed and breakfasts are The Henry Sawyer Inn, at 722 Columbia Ave., and The Victorian Lace Inn, 901 Stockton Ave.  Tickets at both locations are $20.00, offered only to the B&Bs' guests, and must be purchased at the inns.

     East Lynne Theater Company ticket prices are $30.00 for general admission and $25.00 for seniors and those with disabilities and their companions, so these packages offer a considerable savings.  ELTC ticket price for students is $15.00.  Tickets for students and for those who are ages 12 and under, who are admission-free, may be picked up at the box office.  Those providing proof of active military service at the box office, receive a complimentary ticket.

     Another way to save money on an ELTC ticket is online through njArtstix.org.  Several half-price tickets are available for almost every performance, 24 hours in advance.

     Currently, ELTC is presenting the world premiere "The World of Dorothy Parker" running through September 3, Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8:30p.m. at The First Presbyterian Church, 500 Hughes St., Cape May,  with its seating capacity of 150. The season continues with "Dulcy," "Helpful Hints," the silent film version of "Phantom of the Opera" with live organ music (in partnership with The Cape May Film Festival), a new Sherlock Holmes radio show, and the Christmas show.  To learn more about the mainstage season which runs through mid-December, or to make reservations directly with the theater, call 884-5898 or go online to www.eastlynnetheater.org.
