 Almost, Maine  by John Cariani

September 18-20 @ 7:30 pm

Welcome to Almost, Maine, 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 . . . because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it’s just…Almost. 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 Almost, Maine will never be the same.

November 20-22 @ 7:30 pm

WORKING is the working person’s A CHORUS LINE.  A musical exploration of 26 people from all walks of life. WORKING celebrates everyday people in a genuinely funny and touching way. WORKING fills you with hope and inspiration and is the perfect musical for everyone who has ever worked a day in their lives.



Flight by Garth Wingfield

February 26-28 @ 7:30 pm

When he touched down in Paris after more than 30 hours in the air, he became the first person to cross the Atlantic in an airplane... and an instantaneous star, adored the world over. But that was only the first leg of his complicated journey. Welcome to the world of Flight: following Charles Lindbergh during 14 perilous years of his life - from the journey to Paris through the kidnapping of his son and up to the beginning of World War II - Flight is a rich examination of a singular American life... and a thoroughly fascinating theatrical experience.
