ABOUT THE SHOW

Spoon River Anthology

Show Dates: September 12 & 13
(Subject to Change)

Written By: Edgar Lee Masters  Adapted By: Charles Aidman

Directed By: Michael Berkman

We are introduced in a cemetery to the ghosts of those who were inhabitants of this town, and whose secrets have gone with them to the grave. There are sixty-odd characterizations and vignettes in this constantly interesting entertainment offering an amazingly varied array of roles and impersonations, from young lovers and preachers and teachers to the funny chronicle of the poor mixed-up Jew who ends up in the wrong cemetery. Both the solid and humorous sides of life are portrayed with fetching ballads and the free-verse form of Masters.

This show is comprised exclusively of monologues, each one an epitaph delivered by a specter of the deceased appearing just as they did the day they died. Each Actor or actress will play several roles, and thus be required to memorize and characterize between 10 and 20 monologues.

2020 Mainstage Auditions

Mainstage Auditions are held on both Monday & Tuesday from 6:00 – 8:00 PM. It is not necessary to be at both auditions, but prospective actors are welcome to come to both.

Most Mainstage Shows are done by cold reads from the script,
and require no advanced preparation.

Scripts for any of the following shows can be rented at the Box Office for a $10 Deposit, which will be refunded if returned within the approved dates.
