BRISTOL — Newfound Regional High School has a long-standing tradition of producing a full-length fall play. This year, the curtain will open on the romantic comedy "Almost Maine." Most people do not realize that "Almost, Maine," according to “Dramatics” magazine, ”was the most-produced play in North American high schools for the fifth time in the last six years, topping perennial favorites 'A Mid-summer Night’s Dream,' 'Our Town' and 'You Can’t Take it With You.'”
The play is set in Almost, Maine, a town that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States. One night in the middle of winter, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love. And life for the people of Almost, Maine, will never be the same.
This year’s production at Newfound will feature actors from the senior, junior and sophomore classes. The cast includes Lilly Colby, Carter Davis, Duncan Farmer, Emma Lagueux, Deanna Martin, Madison Martin, Mason Martin, Decoda McGee, Adam Nelson, Makayla Pixley, Ethan Pruett, Vicki Roman and Mikayla Royea.
The show will run on Friday, Nov. 17, and Saturday, Nov. 18, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $5 for students and $7 for adults. Refreshments will be available and all proceeds will benefit the senior class.
Please be aware that "Almost, Maine" is a romantic comedy and some may find the material too mature for younger audience members.
