The Sussex Tech Drama Club will present "Almost, Maine" by John Cariani Friday and Saturday, Oct. 27 and 28, in the Commons Area Theater at Sussex Tech High School, 17099 County Seat Highway, Georgetown. Tickets are $10 for students and seniors and $12 for adults. To reserve tickets, email Anthony.firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Almost, Maine” comprises nine stories that take place on the same night, in the same place, at the same time. A show that defies typical classification, “Almost, Maine” has been described as a dramedy, a romantic comedy, magical realism and something completely new. Having premiered in 2006, “Almost, Maine” is one of the most-produced plays in high schools across the country. This play's genius lies in its magic in dealing with real people and real problems. The actors are not playing characters; they are playing people who are all dealing with defining moments in their relationships.
Anthony Natoli directs a cast of 14 to live out the lives of these young people. Bringing laughter and drama are cast members Eryk Bluto, Abigail Porter, Nick Outten, Josh Hoffpauir, Gabby Pardocchi, Abby Pardocchi, Maddi Alt, Sydney Gross, Hannah Wolk, Jack Booth, Jessica Snead, Sophie Czerwinski, Lauren Porter and Ansley Morrow.
