Almost, Maine

by Jon Cariani; Directed by Cindy Schneider and Rhonda Bastarache

The play is set in the mythical town of Almost, Maine, on a cold wintry night with the Northern lights hovering above. It is a compilation of nine whimsically romantic vignettes in which residents of Almost fall in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Audiences should expect the unexpected while watching this show, and be ready to sit back and enjoy the ride!!

You only need to attend one of the above audition sessions in order to be considered. No appointments are necessary. You should plan to spend about 2 hours at the theater for auditions (perhaps a little more or less, depending on turnout).

Auditions will consist of cold reading from the script. It would be helpful but not mandatory to familiarize yourself with the script before auditions.
