The performing arts department at Burlington High School is pleased to announce the performance of John Carini’s romantic comedy, “Almost, Maine.” Performances will take place in the Fogelberg Performing Arts Center of Burlington High School on December 5th and 6th at 7:30 pm and December 7th at 2:00 pm.
Described by the New York Times as "a comedy comprising almost a dozen two-character vignettes exploring the sudden thunderclap of love and the scorched earth that sometimes follows,” the romantic comedy is a favorite of community and high school theatre groups.
On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky, Almost's residents find themselves 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.
Directed by Stephanie Diozzi, the romantic comedy features Ivy Saltsman as Ginette/Waitress, TJ Horgan as Pete/Steve, Rachel Seeley as Glory/Woman, Tommy Bezreh as East/Phil, Xavier Little as Jimmy/Dave, Miranda Russo as Sandrine/Marcy, Laura Frustaci as Marvalynn/Suzette, Anastasia Kranz as Gayle/Rhonda, Pat Hoarty as Lendall/Randy and Harry Lane as Chad/Man.
