Students Perform Spoon River Anthology

Notre Dame College’s theater department will host four performances of Edgar Lee Master's American classic “Spoon River Anthology” for its annual spring play in the Regina Auditorium from April 14 to 17.

NDC's Play Production class will perform "Spoon River Anthology."

Written in 1924, the surprisingly relevant play is in poetry format and tells the story, from the graves, of a small town in the throes of new and crushing modernism.

Adjunct Music Professor Scott Farkas composed a jazz score for the play and the production concept was designed by students in Notre Dame’s play production class.

“The students are coming up with some very creative and exciting presentations,” Director Jacqi Loewy said. “This will not be your mother’s Spoon River.”

Performances of the play will be at 7:30 p.m. on April 14, 15 and 16, and 3 p.m. on April 17 in the Regina Auditorium, which will be staged as a cemetery. Tickets are $10 for the public and free for the Notre Dame College community.

Notre Dame College is located at 4545 College Road in South Euclid. For further information contact Jacqi Loewy, assistant professor of communication and theatre, at 216.373.5189 or jloewy@ndc.edu.
