About the production. 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.  ALMOST, MAINE: It’s love. But not quite.

The play is directed by Amanda Schlachter, SCF associate professor of theatre. The technical crew includes Theatre Assistant Professor Craig Smith, Timothy Bourn, Luke Wessel, Alexandria Maulfair, Ethan Fuhrmeister, Abby Fayette, Kenji Trujillo, and Rebecka Jones

The cast and crew of SCF students include Erika Campbell, Aaron Garcia DeLeon, Martin Nicholas, Jean Felicita, Kayliana Cristello, Joseph Klens, Ruby Daines, Brice Carlton, Micaela Walsh, William McCurdy, Jim Ashburn, and Stephanie Lynd
