The Waldo Theatre brings live theater back for the first time since 2014 with a community production of John Cariani’s romantic comedy “Almost, Maine” beginning June 17 for two consecutive weekends.
The play features a series of two-person scenes introducing audiences to the characters in the small town of Almost, Maine. One cold, clear Friday night in the 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.
Directed by Andrea Itkin, the cast includes Andrew Beaucage, Daiva Deupree, Aisling Mulhern-Dono, Lily Rogers, Garrett Solomon, Wyatt Sykes, Kerri Van Kirk, and Ivan Zizek.
“I am so honored to be at the helm of this funny, poignant, magical play - to re-open this lovely community theatre with a cast and crew ready to knock your socks off!” said Itkin. “I’m hoping everyone will come out of their cocoons, spread their wings and join us to celebrate live theater once again!
”The Waldo’s production team, working backstage, onsets, costumes, lights, sound, and props includes Kathleen Brown, Jim Buckingham, Kate Fletcher, Jim Reitz, Kerry Webber, Oliver Worner, and more.
