MSJ Theater presents 'Almost, Maine'
Mount Saint Joseph Academy's Shoestring Theater Company in Rutland presents John Cariani's “Almost, Maine” at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Saturday.
The play presents eight different short stories all happening on a cold, clear winter night, when the Northern Lights are out, way up in the middle of nowhere in Maine.
The characters in each scene all live in the same small township and are ordinary folks who struggle in various ways to find themselves in the world and a person to share it with.
Tickets are $6 for adults and $3 for seniors, students and kids. Refreshments will be served after each show.
