The Appleton North High School theatre department will present the popular romantic comedy, ALMOST, MAINE on May 2ND - 6TH in the Appleton North High School auditorium. Almost, Maine is a town that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States—it’s almost in Canada. And it almost doesn’t exist, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it’s just…Almost. One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded. And life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same. It’s love. But not quite.
Appleton North theatre director, Ron Parker states, “ALMOST MAINE is currently one of the most produced plays in America and THE most popular play among high schools in the nation. It was written by New York actor and playwright, John Cariani and features eight short vignettes, each about a different aspect of love and relationships set against the backdrop of this tiny, northeastern town and each including a unique, magical twist. One of the best descriptions I’ve seen of the play is that it is a cross between the movie, ‘Love, Actually’ and ‘The Twilight Zone.’ It is hilariously funny and sweet, simple, yet complex, heartwarming and sometimes sad, whimsical, but always honest. If you’ve ever fallen in or out of love—or hope to. This play is for you.”
North’s production will feature a cast of 28 student actors. Audience members will be seated directly upon the stage in a “studio environment” to make them part of the action and storytelling. Performances time are: May 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th at 7:30 p.m. and May 5th and 6th at 1:00 p.m. General admission is $10.00. Tickets are available at the door one hour before each performance. Seating is limited to 120 per performance.
