“Almost, Maine” romanticizes audiences


Megan Stoerman, Business Manager

Right as the leaves start to turn and the temperatures dip many find themselves wanting a new romantic movie to watch, but romantic comedies are now brought to life onstage in the theatre. Almost, Maine provides just this.

Almost, Maine is a comedic collection of nine short stories set the imaginary town of Almost, Maine. Individuals in the play randomly find themselves falling in and out of love at the most inconvenient moments.

Audiences were left wondering what would happen next while being fully immersed in every single story when Almost, Maine preformed in the Black Box Theater on Oct. 4-6.

Development of characters and seeing audiences’ reactions was what Chealsie Crum, senior, who played Ginette, was most looking forward to.

Sarah Tolman, junior, who played Glory, was also looking forward to audiences’ reactions especially when something silly would happen, saying “that’s always fun!”

Crum was very excited when cast lists were posted and was especially looking forward to “working with great people and as [her] favorite first featured role.”

Tolman’s favorite part of preparing for the play was “seeing how everything progresses from reading the scenes to blocking the scenes and the set.”
