The Theatre Arts Program at the Sylvania Campus has a new play – “The Spoon River Project.” Based on Edgar Lee Masters’ “Spoon River Anthology,” the former residents of the small, but complex town of Spoon River examine their lives and longings for who they were and what might have been. Often compared to Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town,” this American masterpiece is having its Oregon premiere right here at PCC.
Performances are at 7:30 p.m., Friday, March 7 and Saturdays, March 8 and 15. The program will host special pay-what-you-will matinees at 11 a.m., Thursday and Friday, March 13 and 14. The closing show is set for 2 p.m., Sunday, March 16. All performances are in the Performing Arts Center, Sylvania Campus. Tickets are available 30 minutes before performances at the box office. They are $10 for general admission, $8 for seniors, students and staff, and $5 for groups of 12 or more. For more information about events, call (971) 722-4949.
In addition, “The Spoon River Project” is guest-directed by Julie Akers with vocal and music direction by the Sylvania Music Program’s Julianne Johnson-Weiss. If you want to know more about the cast and crew and remaining dates, visit the Theatre Arts webpage.
