On Friday and Saturday evening, November 18-19, at 7:30 p.m. at United Methodist Church in Gales Ferry, We will present Edgar Lee's Masters Spoon River Anthology. In Spoon River, we are introduced in a cemetery to the ghosts of those who were inhabitants of the 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 chronicle of the poor mixed up soul that has ended up in the wrong cemetery. Both the sordid and humorous sides of life are portrayed, through fetching ballads, and the free verse form of Masters Poetry. The cast features ten actors playing a wide variety of roles and five musicians who sing and play guitar throughout the course of the evening. Tickets are $5 and they will be available at the door the night of the performance. For more information contact Russ Hammond at 860 464-9600 ext. 145.
