Almost, Maine by John Cariani was originally performed Off-Broadway in 2006 and has since become a favorite amongst theatres around the country. It's honest characters, charming stories, and clever humor make it impossible not to love. The play is directed by Matt Demko and Sarah Cook, with technical direction by Scott Piddington, and costume design by Tammy Denver and Judy Cook.
Nineteen Gilford High School students create the ensemble of the play. Anna Malek, Dawson Ellis, Kaylee Lemire, Hunter Sanborn, Kyliegh Farley, Tom Pouliot, Sophia Prevost, Cordelia Penney, Alec Medine, Delaney Andrews, Maccoy Bourgeois, Jake Adams, Colin Croft, Emily Hanf, Sean Desautelle, Summer McGaffigan, Ryan Hall, Heather Hunt, and Jack Harding will play the inhabitants of Almost, Maine.
