University Theatre presents 'Almost, Maine'

March 29, 2013
KOKOMO, Ind. — The student University Theatre group at Indiana University Kokomo presents its production of the romantic comedy, Almost Maine, next week.

almostmaine-stillTroy Brooks and Sarah Ferenc rehearse for "Almost, Maine."

Presented as a series of two-character vignettes in Havens Auditorium, the play includes 18 student actors and five crew members.

Shows are at 7:30 p.m. Friday (April 5) and Saturday (April 6), and 2 p.m. Sunday (April 7). After Friday's production, audience members are invited to stay for a "talk back," when the actors will return to the stage to talk about their characters and the show, and answer questions.

Admission is $5 for students and $7 for the public. Tickets will be available at the door. The show is suitable for people age 13 and older.

Biz Bates, student director, said the audience is sure to enjoy the varied personalities of the characters, set in the fictional town of Almost, in rural northwestern Maine.

"There is someone everyone can relate to in this show," she said. "I think people will recognize some of the situations, and will be entertained by how the characters react in those situations."

Adjunct faculty member J.L. Murdoch, the production's director, said at its heart, the show is about relationships.

"We all know about falling in love, but the way it happens in each of these stories is pretty unique," she said. "The humor in this show comes from very unexpected places. There is something every audience member will connect to and enjoy."
