SEARSPORT, Maine — In the middle of winter, at 9 p.m., as the northern lights hover over the mythical town of Almost, Maine, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. The northern lights appear during solar storms, when electrons enter the earth’s atmosphere, striking and exciting atoms. The lights fade when the atoms return to their original grounded state. Almost’s residents are normally very grounded, but have become very excited about love and other magical occurrences. What happens if you find yourself falling in love with a complete stranger who wants to camp out in your yard? What do you do when your old boyfriend who you dumped stops you on your way back to your bachelorette party? What would it be like not to feel pain? What if your girlfriend storms in, demanding that you give her back all the love she gave you? What does it take to be the “baddest-date-guy of all time”?
These questions get answered, and more questions are raised as Searsport District High School Theater presents John Cariani’s well known and well loved play ALMOST, MAINE. If you are from Maine, live in Maine, are visiting Maine, or have ever fallen in love or out of love in Maine or outside of Maine, this gem is worth a look. Directed by Chris Goosman, veteran actors Anderson Denduang, Quin Fraser, Brianna Housman, Gwen Higgins, James Harvey, and Cheyenne Runci along with newcomers Hannah McKinney, Kirsten Mellor, Kimberly Busko, Julian Cross, Rachel Campagna, Kelsey MacMillan, Raymond Barlow and alumni Tyler Greenlaw bring ALMOST, MAINE to life at the Searsport District Middle/High School cafetorium. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., shows begin at 7:00pm each night, and tickets are $5 at the door. Shows on Thursday November 17th, Friday the 18th, and Saturday the 19th. One weekend only! Just like the northern lights, ALMOST, MAINE will be here and gone in an instant – as Marci would say to her husband, Phil, “You gotta pay attention”!
