Almost, Maine

Location: San Jacinto, California

Type: Theater

Auditions for Mt San Jacinto College, San Jacinto Campus production of ALMOST, MAINE

On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often 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 an ensemble play about 9 different couples in various stages of falling in or out of love. In the original production, the nine couples were played by two female and two male actors. The number of actors in the MSJC production will not be determined until after auditions. We anticipate that we will cast between 6 and 16 actors and that some actors will play more than one role. Point of information: Several of the scenes will require the characters to kiss.
