Good day to you, people of Spoon River!
We would like to welcome you to the largest cast for a performance of Edgar Lee Masters' Spoon River Anthology, Rochester Style. We are delighted to have you join us as we channel the lost denizens of a far away place.
We're getting closer...closer...CLOSER!!! Before you know it, performance day will be here so please make sure that you make note of the following:
CHECK YOUR EMAIL! If you are not receiving emails from us, or are missing them because they are going to "spam" or your "promotional" tab in gmail - put that email in your inbox, or better yet, add us to your address book so that you do not miss out on any important information.
Follow this link to the Spoon RiverRochester.com Cast page with information and archived cast bulletins.
You will be getting a series of videos (short, I promise) that will answers questions ranging from "What the heck is Spoon River Rochester?" to "Do I have to dress in period costume?" or "Can I wear my Marilyn Manson costume?" WATCH THE VIDEOS! You will learn how to approach your poem, what to wear and how to do your makeup, etc.
We can hear you now...

It was the falling asunder of halves,
never a part of eachother,
that left me a lifeless soul.
