The CHS Theatre Department will perform Spoon River: Set Free on Sunday, Oct. 25, at the Texas Crown, with back-to-back shows at 6 pm and 7:30 pm. The one-act play is based on the novel, Spoon River Anthology, written by Edgar Lee Masters and adapted by Mistie Walser, who is also directing the performance. Christy White is the assistant director. In Masters’ original collection of postmortem autobiographical epitaphs, 244 former citizens of fictional Spoon River, Illinois, tell the truth about their lives—with the honesty that no fear of consequences enables. Masters shattered the myth of small-town America as the example of American virtue. Tickets can be purchased from a cast or crew member: $10/adult and $5/student. With reduced seating, no at-door tickets will be available. Masks and social distancing will be required for those who attend.
