Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States. It’s almost in Canada. And it’s not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it almost doesn’t exist. One cold, clear, winter night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

Almost, Maine is a free live production. You must "purchase" a ticket online in order to receive the link to view this performance virtually or in person.  $5 Suggested Donation.  A limited number of tickets will be available. Face masks that cover the nose and mouth are required to be worn at all times by guests.

STILL HERE! features the music of Stephen Sondheim and other composers he influenced such as Jonathan Larson (Rent), and Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey (Next to Normal) with the book written by Ardencie Hall-Karambe, Ph. D. Dr. Hall has used this powerful music to weave a story about people standing on the cusp of life unsure of their next steps. Many find it much easier to set up camp there, digging in and refusing to change which often makes things worse. STILL HERE! provides us an opportunity to see that renewal and rebirth are possible.
