Spoon River Performed on the Main Stage
The senior theater majors finished off their high school career with a production of Edgar Lee Master's Spoon River Anthologies, under the direction of Mr. Kottler. Each senior selected a character from the fictional town of Spoon River. But here's the spooky part, these characters are speaking to us from beyond the grave. After memorizing their monologue, students then developed a performance piece that brought these stories to life . Some students danced, some painted, some committed awful crimes, but everyone (including the audience) had a terrific time. #Theatre
Synopsis of the Spoon River Anthology: Former citizens of a mythical Midwestern town speak from the grave of the day-to-day hopes and dreams of their lives. Touching, anguished, and contemptuous, their voices and stories weave together in this fresh new take on a modern American classic. You won't forget what you've heard from these distinctively small-town folk as they evoke universal themes of hope, despair, and love.
