ALMOST, MAINE runs March 22-25

ALMOST, MAINE
Presented by Xavier University Players
March 22-25
Evanston

On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night’s dream. Rated PG.

Cast: John Prijatel as Pete, Kathleen Rossman as Ginette, Blake Gibson as East, Jackie Hart as Glory, Ollie Birckhead as Jimmy, Laura Birckhead as Sandrine, Cambell Tuel as Waitress, Nick Lehan as Steve, Bethy Jarus as Marvalyn, Alex Spindler as Lendall, Jessie Sherman as Gayle, Nate Fischer as Randy, Justin Hanks as Chad, Paul Hogue as Phil, Jessica Baskin as Marci, Zach Julian as Man, Mary Schuessler as Hope, Alex Rogers as Dave & Allie Hart as Rhonda
