The College of the Canyons theatre department will present “Almost, Maine” in the Black Box Theater at the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center (PAC) for a limited engagement running from March 23-31.
Written by John Cariani, “Almost, Maine” is a play made up of nine short plays that explore love and loss in a remote, mythical almost-town called Almost, Maine.
Described as “sweet, poignant, and witty,” by the New York Daily News, “Almost, Maine” is set on a cold winter night when residents find themselves falling in and out love in the most unexpected and hilarious ways.
The COC production of “Almost, Maine” is directed by longtime COC theatre faculty member Susan Hinshaw. Hinshaw’s previous COC directing credits include productions of “Raisin in the Sun”, “Reasons to be Happy,” “Keely and Du,” “A Doll’s House,” “Love Letters” and most recently “Buzzer.”
Christopher Boltz, head of the technical theatre program and theatre department chair, is the play’s production designer, scenic, lighting and sound designer. The cast and crew of the production are comprised solely of COC theatre students.
Performances of the COC theatre department’s production of “Almost, Maine” will take place at 8 p.m. March 23, 24, 30 and 31. Matinee performances will run at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 25 and Saturday March 31. General admission tickets are $10. Students and seniors are $5.
