About the event

On April 14, 1865, 150 years ago, President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated at Ford’s
Theatre in Washington D.C. by actor John Wilkes Booth, while watching Laura Keene in “Our
American Cousin.” Written by English playwright Tom Taylor in 1858, this three-act comedy
is about an awkward, but honest American, Asa Trenchard, who meets his aristocratic
relatives when he goes to England to claim the family estate. This will be performed as a
staged reading, giving patrons the rare opportunity to experience a classic play with such a
unique tie to American history.

About the event

(available after March 15, 2014) ELTC’s popular vintage-radio style production, with live sound effects and commercials, now with two great detectives! Sherlock Holmes Adventure of the Copper Beeches about a governess in peril, and Nick Carter and the Strange Dr. Devolo, in which Manhattan millionaires are missing.

While Sherlock Holmes was solving crimes in England, Nick Carter was busy in Manhattan. Carter first appeared as the hero in a serialized novel, The Old Detective’s Pupil, in the “New York Weekly” in 1886 – a year before Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Holmes’ first caper, A Study in Scarlet. In 1930, the Sherlock Holmes radio series began with The Adventure of the Copper Beeches and in 1943, the Nick Carter series was launched with The Strange Dr. Devolo. While Copper Beeches is not the original script by Edith Meiser (this one is adapted by Gayle Stahlhuth), The Strange Dr. Devolo IS the original script.

Numerous Nick Carter novels were written by a variety of people through 1990, with Nick changing with the times. In 1964, the series changed from “Nick Carter: Master Detective” to “Nick Carter: Killmaster” to compete with James Bond and other international super spies. The Nick Carter Detective character, copyright, and trademarks are owned by Conde Nast. Used with permission.
