Welcome to Almost, Maine. A town that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States – it’s almost in Canada. And it almost doesn’t exist. Because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it’s just... Almost. One cold, clear Friday night 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. And life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same. Almost, Maine: It’s love. But not quite.

Students need only audition once, on either day, by showing up for a (roughly) one-hour audition slot. Reading the play beforehand is strongly suggested. The script is on reserve in the PCC library as well as in the PAC Green Room. Auditions will consist of readings from the play.

Students cast in the TA Fall 2016 production of Almost, Maine will be required to enroll in TA 180 for between 1-4 credits and TA 250 for 1-3 credits. The cast will meet before Spring term ends to discuss rehearsal schedules in fall (once school begins) as well as the play. Rehearsals will begin the first week of Fall term. Rehearsals will be afternoons or evenings Monday through Thursday and Friday mornings from 9-12.
