North Star Theater Company Presents “An Evening In Spoon River.”


North Star Theater Company presents “An Evening In Spoon River,” a night of music, art, dance and theater to be held at Cornerstone Playhouse. Directed by Kelly Dacus-Smith and produced by Jodi Halteman, the show consists of monologues from Edgar Lee Master’s “Spoon River Anthology” depicting life of a rural town from the perspective of epitaphs of the deceased. Music and dances are dispersed throughout the show, either responding to or reflecting upon each monologue. “An Evening In Spoon River” performance is a collage of hope, reflection and inspiration coupled with a response to the pandemic as certain restrictions begin to lift and as theaters start to open.  

North Star Theater Company is partnering with several creative groups in the community to help create the collage of art forms including theater, music, dance and fine art. Stage managed by Zachary Halteman, the show’s artistic collaboration includes music direction by cellist Aimee Nishimura, dancers performing from Dance Expression Dance Arts company and artwork provided by students from Wallkill Valley Regional High School. All artists reside in Sussex County. 

The performances of “An Evening In Spoon River” will be held on Friday, May 21,  at 7 p.m., Saturday, May 22, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. and Sunday, May 23, at 2 p.m.  Tickets are $20 for adults and $17 for seniors 65 and above and students 17 and below. The show is one hour long with no intermission. The audience must wear face masks at all times.
