East Lynne Theater Company (ELTC) is a proven destination for theater lovers who crave the adventure of discovery. By bringing the American Spirit to the stage with its blend of provocative premieres and timeless classics, this award-winning Equity professional theater provides a portal to the past for a better understanding of the present. Founded in 1980, it was the first theater in the country with the unique mission of presenting and preserving America's theatrical heritage, and is named after a popular 19th century American play. In 1996, Ohio State University honored ELTC by asking to house the company's archives at its "Jerome Laurence and Robert E. Lee Theatre Research Institute." In 2009, ELTC received the New Jersey Theatre Alliance's "Achievement of Excellence Award" for "30 years of celebrating America's heritage through productions and educational programs."
