Curtain Players has named its cast for The Spoon River Project, the final production in the community theater’s 57th season.

Director Damon Barnett announced the cast following an open audition Sunday, February 9, including: Thomas Durkin, Jessie Ankrom, Nathan Stelts, Noah Martin, Jeremiah Swope, Justin Pinsker, Chelsea Overman, Lisa Radke, Gail Stewart, Lauren Murphy, Aleksa Kaups. The eleven-member ensemble will collectively portray more than forty characters.

In Tom Andolora's beautifully haunting play, based on Edgar Lee Masters's Spoon River Anthology, the former residents of Spoon River examine life and the longing for what might have been. As the citizens reflect on the dreams, secrets, and regrets of their lives, they paint a gritty and honest portrait of the town as all of their pasts are illuminated.

Curtain Players presents The Spoon River Project by Tom Andolora May 1-17 at the 5691 Harlem Road playhouse. Suitable for all ages.

Tickets for all Curtain Players Season 57 productions, including The Spoon River Project, are on sale online at curtainplayers.org/tickets.
