almost-maine-logoThe second production of the 2013/2014 Season at the North Platte Community Playhouse, ALMOST MAINE, will open November 16th.

On a cold, clear, moonless Friday 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, residents of Almost find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways.

Knees are bruised; hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded. But the bruises heal and the hearts mend-almost-in what has been described as “a comic, romantic roundelay” by the Wall Street Journal . Almost, Maine inventively explores the mysteries of the human heart, touching audiences with laughter, heartbreak and hope.

Tickets sales for the production start Monday, November 11th.  Tickets can be purchased at the Playhouse Monday-Friday from Noon-5:00pm, online at www.northplattecommunityplayhouse.com or at the door prior to any performance.

Performances will be held November 16, 17, 22, 23 and 24, with Friday and Saturday performances starting at 8:00pm and Sunday matinees starting at 2:00pm.

The production is directed by Carey Harder and is made possible, in part, by the support of the Nebraska Arts Council and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment of the Arts.   It is produced through a special arrangement with Dramatists Publishers, Inc.
