ACANY’s Fall 2020 Virtual Play

Director: Broadway & TV Star, Joe Carroll (FROZEN, BANDSTAND, CINDERELLA, THE POLITICIAN, NEW AMSTERDAM)

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 an ensemble show written by Tony Nominated Actor and Playwright John Cariani (FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, SOMETHING ROTTEN, THE BAND’S VISIT).

The show will be edited together, and we’ll be hosting a viewing party with the cast, family, friends, and scouting industry guests 2 weeks later!

How can you know what you have until you know what you have?

In fact, we are finding ourselves all the time. Should we keep what we find, or let it go? The choice is ours. But it’s always a good idea to celebrate what you have.
