‘Almost Maine’ opens March 28 with spaghetti dinner and a show
March 13, 2014
Douglas High School Drama presents its spring play “Almost Maine,” a romantic comedy about love lost and found.
Showtimes are 7 p.m. March 28-29 and April 4-5, and 2 p.m. March 30 and April 6 in the DHS drama room
“Almost Maine” takes place in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above. Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded.
According to organizers, ”Almost Maine” has been produced by more than 2000 theater companies in the United States (and by over a dozen companies internationally) making it one of the most frequently produced plays of the past decade.
“This play has come together with the help of the drama classes that have designed and built the set with the help of Norris Edson from Carson Valley Community Theatre,” organizers said. “On our opening night, we are partnering with the band to do dinner and a show for a fundraiser.”
The spaghetti dinner and silent auction proceeds will go toward new uniforms for the band, and ticket sales for the show that evening will help cover costs for students traveling to the International Thespian Festival in Lincoln, Neb., this summer.
Dinner is 5:30-8 p.m. March 28 in the Douglas High School Commons. Cost is $7 per person, or $30 per family (limited to six people.) Show tickets are $5 in advance from any music or drama department member, or $10 at the door.
The Jazz Cats will provide entertainment, along with a silent auction and children’s raffle.
Ticket prices for any other show dates are $10 general admission or $7 for students, children and seniors.
