TCT to present ‘Almost, Maine’

TROY — Troy Civic Theatre has announced its upcoming production, “Almost, Maine,” a romantic comedy by playwright Jon Cariani.

It is a cold, clear, moonlit night during winter in the mythical unorganized area that is almost a town and is therefore known as Almost, Maine. Saturn is at its brightest above Hedgehog Mountain, the Northern Lights are visible, and shooting stars light the sky as the residents (and some visitors) of this remote town find themselves experiencing all aspects of love. They fall in and out of love, propose marriage, face divorce, confront the one that got away, meet the one that might be, mend broken hearts, and share first kisses. As they explore the most human of emotions, they remind us what is most important — love for one another.

“Almost, Maine” features Niccole SueAnn Wallace, Jennifer Kaufman, Sydney Edington, Beth Shrake, Tina Hayes, Jenny McClain, Steve Dietrich, Doug Lowe and TCT newcomer Braden Stafford. Director Derek Dunavent is also assisted by stage manager Peg Dietrich.

“Almost, Maine” is being presented with permission by Dramatists Play Services. Performances run Sept. 16-18, and 23-24 at the Barn in the Park in Troy, at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays. Tickets are available by calling the theatre box office at (937) 339-7700. Season tickets will also be available, and include admission to “Almost, Maine,” “Two By Two, Rumors,” and “Things My Mother Taught Me.”

Troy Civic Theatre is a non-profit community theater. The theater celebrated its 50th anniversary season during the 2015-16 theatrical season, and received several Dayton community and West Ohio regional awards for productions during that season.
