SOLD OUT From Sharon to Spoon River: A Guided Theatrical Experience in the Historic Sharon Burying Ground

October 10, 2020 @ 12:00 pm 6:30 pm

Register on the Sharon Playhouse website by clicking on this link. Please register for a specific entry time. There will be six tours beginning on the hour starting at 12 noon. All performances begin at The Historic Sharon Burying Ground entrance (Hillside Cemetery entrance) on Cemetery Road in Sharon, CT. The hour-long performances will be followed by a reception on the Sharon Town Green at the Historical Society and Hotchkiss Library.

Audience members will follow a tour guide, who will recount tales and history of the venerable cemetery while escorting them to various locations where actors will bring to life, as it were, original stories and selected works from Spoon River Anthology by Edgar Lee Masters.

This performance is suitable for all ages. All current local and federal guidelines for social distancing will be followed and attendees will be required to wear a mask. We also ask that you wear comfortable shoes and have the ability to walk through the hilly cemetery and be able to stand for the hour-long performance.

This production is a collaboration of four Sharon, CT nonprofit organizations including the Sharon Playhouse, the Sharon Historical Society & Museum, the Historic Sharon Burying Ground, Inc. (Hillside Cemetery) and the Hotchkiss Library.
