Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States. It’s almost in Canada. And it’s not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it almost doesn’t exist. One cold, clear, winter night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine, find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend – almost – in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.
WHAT WILL AUDITIONS BE LIKE?
You will sign in and fill out an audition form to tell us about yourself. Don’t worry if you’ve never done this before — experience isn’t required. A script will be given to you at the auditions. You will be asked to read from the script, along with others who are auditioning. You do not need to attend both audition nights. Auditions begin at 7 p.m.
WHAT ROLES ARE AVAILABLE?
There are several roles available for men and women of various ages. There are no roles for children in this play.
WHEN ARE REHEARSALS?
Beginning just a few days after auditions, rehearsals will be scheduled weeknights, with some weekend involvement closer to the performance dates, which are March 9, 10, 11, 12(matinee), 15, 16, 17 and 18.
WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?
ACT is a non-profit, volunteer organization providing quality theatre and entertainment for our community. If you’re not interested in being on stage, there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer in other ways, such as backstage crew, building and painting sets, costumes, props, lights, sound, usher or in the box office. If you are interested in volunteering or would like more information about auditions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
