Almost, Maine

maine_thumbAcalanes DramaDons presents Almost, Maine, directed by Ed Meehan. The entertaining romantic comedy runs November 6, 7, 13, 14 and 15 at 7.00pm in the Acalanes Performing Arts Center Little Theatre.

Almost, Maine is an off Broadway play by John Cariani, featuring a remote, mythical town called Almost, Maine. Each of nine vignettes take place at nine o’clock on the same Friday night, in the middle of winter, with Almost's residents falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend — almost — in this delightful midwinter night's dream. Please join the DramaDons for a charming, witty and humorous evening. 

Advance ticket sales available  on campus during lunch and on the AHS Web Store. Limited tickets are available at the door. All proceeds benefit Acalanes Performing Arts Boosters - Drama. $10 Adults $7 Student & Seniors. There is an additional $.35 handling charge for online ticket sales.
