Bay Village Community Theater seeking donations, sponsors for first play

Chosen as the first full production of the Bay Village Community Theater, "Almost, Maine" offers a lot for our organization to be excited about. It consistently sells out and in 2014 was the most-produced play in North American high schools for the third time in the last five years.

The New York Times called it "a beautifully structured play, with nifty surprise endings (most but not all of them happy) ... [and] a touch of good-natured magic realism.”

Almost, Maine, is a town that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States – it’s almost in Canada. And it almost doesn’t exist. One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of 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 the town will never be the same. Almost, Maine: It’s love. But not quite.

The Bay Village Community Theater will stage the production at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, March 3, 4, 10 and 11; closing with a 3 p.m. matinee on Sunday, March 12. Discounted tickets will be available for purchase at until Jan. 31.

You can help our production by making a tax-deductible donation, purchasing an ad in our program or by becoming a sponsor of the show.
