On Saturday, January 23, at 6:30 pm, the ORR Drama Club will convene on Zoom for an official cast party to celebrate the successful virtual production of “Spoon River Anthology.”
During this gathering, the students will view the newly-released “Spoon River Movie” and spend some time reminiscing— laughing with both joy and embarrassment— from their living room couches. The ORR Drama Club students’ optimism and ingenuity will not be dampened by this unusual circumstance. With the support and hard work of F.O.R.D. (the Drama Club’s parent-led booster club) the SRM cast will open goodie bags filled with snacks, memorabilia, and maybe a little non-alcoholic bubbly for the many inevitable toasts.
At 7:30 pm, the community is invited to join the entire club for the grand finale to watch the fully edited Director’s Cut of “Spoon River Movie.” Drama Director Jacob Sherburne has utilized his ever-growing knowledge of film editing and special effects to compose a sleek, vibrant edit that smooths over some of the live performance’s technical hiccups.
“Spoon River Movie” is now available on the F.O.R.D. website for streaming, but the ORR Drama Club is inviting the whole world to crash its cast party and watch the movie that will begin simultaneously with the students. It also is scheduled to broadcast over ORCTV’s FB, and Bulldog Weekly’s YouTube Channel.
And for a festive insider experience, viewers can click on the Facebook Live link: bit.ly/SpoonRiverMovie-CastParty to see a live feed of some of the actors’ Zoom squares as they watch the movie with you. And if you post a comment on Facebook Live, the students will get to read your live feedback, and maybe even respond. It is sure to be a magical evening.
All proceeds collected through our secure donation portal will help keep the stage lights on during this lean time. Thank you so much for your support.
