SCT Playhouse: Almost, Maine
Location: Spencer Community Theatre

Dec 14, 2018, 7:30 AM – Dec 16, 2018, 2:00 PM

The next production from Spencer Community Theatre is:
ALMOST, MAINE by John Cariani.

Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that is 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 bruised heal and the 
hearts mend --almost-- in this delightful midwinter night's dream.

Show Dates and Times:
December:  7, 8, 9, 14, 15 and 16
Evening performances at 7:30pm
Sunday matinee at 2pm.
