Romantic Comedy “Almost, Maine” to be staged by VGCC Drama students
Vance-Granville Community College Drama students will present a production of John Cariani’s comedy, “Almost, Maine,” December 6-9. Performances begin on Thursday, Dec. 6 at 8 p.m.; Friday, Dec. 7 at 8 p.m.; Saturday, Dec. 8 at 2 p.m. and at 8 p.m.; and on Sunday, Dec. 9 at 2 p.m. All performances are in the small auditorium in Building 2 on the college’s Main Campus in Henderson.
The title refers to the remote, mythical town in which the play (first performed in 2004) is set. On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways.
The cast includes VGCC students Spencer Nunn of Warrenton, Rachel Pottern of Wake Forest, Joy Chalmers of Oxford, Cody Trivette of Oxford, Cameron Kester of Bullock, Jennie Robinson of Henderson, Courtney Mitchell of Franklinton and Bruce Hayes of Henderson. Betsy Henderson, the VGCC Theatre Arts/speech instructor and Department Head of Humanities and Fine Arts, directs the play.
Admission is $10 for the general public, and $5 for students, VGCC faculty and staff, and seniors. Tickets may be purchased at the door, but attendees are encouraged to secure their seats by making reservations. For more information and to reserve seats, contact Betsy Henderson at (252) 738-3371.
