Almost, Maine

by John Cariani

April 24-26 & May 1-3


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.

“ALMOST, MAINE is a series of nine amiably absurdist vignettes about love, with a touch of good-natured magic realism…witty, romantic, unsentimental. A beautifully structured play, with nifty surprise endings (most but not all of them happy).” —NY Times.

“Sweet, poignant, and witty. Nearly perfect. ALMOST, MAINE’s charm is real. [It] packs wit, earns its laughs and, like love, surprises you.” —NY Daily News.

The show is a fundraiser put on by the Little Sisters of Hoboken to raise money to bury sisters accidently poisoned by the convent cook, Sister Julia (Child of God). Updated with new jokes, additional lyrics, two new arrangements, and a brand new song, this zany musical has been videotaped for television starring Rue McClanahan as the Mother Superior.  NUNSENSE was first produced at the Cherry Lane Theatre in New York City on December 12, 1985. It was directed by Dan Goggin.

And Then There Were None

by Agatha Christie

October 9-11 & 16-18

Ten strangers are summoned to a remote island. All that the guests have in common is their own wicked past they're unwilling to reveal to each other and a secret that will seal their fate, for each has been marked for murder. As the weather turns and the group is cut off from the mainland, one by one they are murdered in accordance with the lines of a sinister nursery rhyme, "Ten Little Soldier Boys". The play was a smash hit in the West End and on Broadway.
