crest-only-278x2781“Almost, Maine,” written by John Cariani, is a quirky romantic comedy composed of nine short scenes that will have you laughing, crying and thinking about the true meaning of love.

The play takes place in a little, unorganized fictional town in Maine on a Friday night, at approximately 9 p.m., in the middle of winter while the northern lights twinkle in the sky above them. The play is a lot like the movies “Valentine’s Day” and “New Year’s Eve.” Each couple will have different storylines, but each story is happening at the exact same time.

Watch as characters’ lives intertwine in unexpected ways. Hearts will be broken, relationships will be mended, knees will be bruised, love will be lost and found, and in some cases items of clothing will be thrown to the ground.

Audience members will have feelings of happiness, sadness, awkwardness, anger, jealousy, affection and adoration as they watch this cute storyline. This is the result in the cases of a boy who cannot feel pain, a bad tattoo, an artificial heart, a pointillist painting, bags of love and two boys falling for each other… literally. Each scene will have you feeling a different emotion.

The jam–packed cast features Christian Crues, Jennie Richardson, Stella Hundley, Liz Duccilli, Anna Joy Thompson, Taylor Dillon, Ashley Conover, Ariel Wren, Elizabeth Maines, Samuel Adams, Jacob Townson, Shay McCleavy, Dalton Graves, Cory Parr, Ethan Smith, Alex Caudill and Braden Bocard.

The crew for “Almost, Maine” involves Katie Clark, Grant Harned, Shelby Riddell, Alex Courtenay, Teresa Curtis, Hannah Kennedy and others. The director for “Almost, Maine” is George McGee, and the scenic designer and technical designer is Robert Pickering.
