Eveleth-Gilbert Drama Guild presents Almost, Maine
Almost, Maine is a town that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States—it’s almost in Canada. And it almost doesn’t exist. Because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it’s just…Almost.
One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded. And life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same. Almost, Maine: It’s love. But not quite.
Almost, Maine was created by playwright John Cariani. To date, Almost, Maine has been produced by over 2,500 theater companies in the United States (and by over a dozen companies internationally) making it one of the most frequently produced plays of the past decade.
Performances are set for Thursday, April 27, and Friday, April 28, at 7 p.m. and Saturday, April 29, at 1 p.m. in the Boardman Auditorium on the Eveleth school campus. Tickets are $6 for adults, and $4 for students and senior citizens.
Jeremy Liimatta is directing the production, and Chris Chad is serving as the assistant director. Stage managers are Kailee Grahek and Jessica Tichy.
The cast features Shaina Garman, Sophie Graves, Hannah Grenewich, MiKayla Kerr, Bailey Kreutzer, Quinn Muhich, Andrew Rask, Amanada Rigstad, Jessica Tichy, Hayley Ward, and Kiri Yourczek.
The crew includes Brody Buatala, Kailey Gibson, and Nicole Hiti.
