ENMU offering ‘Spoon River Anthology’

The Eastern New Mexico University Department of Theatre and Dance will perform the play “Spoon River Anthology” at 7 p.m. Nov. 15, at 2 p.m. Nov. 16 and at 7 p.m. Nov. 17-18 at the University Theater Center. Performances will be held in the Studio Theatre, and are free and open to the public.
“Spoon River Anthology” is based on a book of the same name published in 1915, which uses short poems and stories to describe life in a small town. The play and book are based on the premise that all of the townspeople have died and are coming back to life to tell their stories and secrets.
Assistant Professor of Theatre Anne Beck chose this to compare and contrast how life in small towns has changed and stayed the same.
The piece was selected because it can accommodate any class size as it has more than 60 parts. Many students are assuming the roles of multiple characters.
Information: Shirlene Peters, 562-2711.
