The Amity High School Theater Department will present the heart warming romantic comedy "Almost, Maine" by John Cariani as its fall production this year.
Amity High School theater arts teacher Rob Kennedy said, “This production will viewed by the entire Amity student body, as part of the High Schools advisory program. However, there will be two public performances so the public can come and see what great work our student actors are doing. I am very excited for everyone to see this sweet, charming and funny show.”
About the play
On a Friday night in the middle of winter, residents of a small, mythical town in far northern Maine are falling in and out of love at an alarming rate. Knees are getting bruised; hearts are getting broken...but the bruises heal and hearts mend-almost-in what has been described as a "charming midwinter night's dream."
Almost, Maine will leave you spent from laughter and thoroughly warmed from the inside out. The New York Daily news called Almost, Maine “Sweet, poignant and witty." The New York Sun said, "A snowy charmer. These nine tales of love in the time of frostbite have a winning glow that proves surprisingly contagious”.
The Amity cast includes: Matthew Burkhart, Nina Yasick, Ted McNulty, Ali Kramer, Peter Charney, Rachel Skalka, April Rock, Alida Ballou, Kara Burgess, Bowen Kirwood, Heidi Schulte, Kate Poland, and Carson Adair. With crew members Sloane, Zachary Arons, Ellie Flaumenhaft and Andrew Gusciora.
Performance Dates : December 9 and 10 at 8 p.m. at the Amity High School Auditorium.
