In the town of Almost, Maine, residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways under the Northern Lights. Hearts are broken and mended in what the New York Times called “a whimsical approach to the joys and perils of romance. Magical happenings bloom beneath the snowdrifts.”
Actors in the play are students at Emory & Henry College. Professor Christianne Roll is stage director of “Almost, Maine,” and Professor Dan Wheeler is design and technical director of the production.
Reservations are strongly recommended. The play is free of charge to Emory & Henry College faculty, staff and students.
