Spencer Community Theatre presents: 'Almost, Maine'

Friday, December 7, 2018

Spencer Community Theatre welcomes audiences to the second show of its 59th anniversary season, “Almost, Maine.” Almost, Maine, is a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States. It’s almost in Canada. And it’s not quite a town because its residents never got around to getting organized, so it almost doesn’t exist. One cold, clear, winter night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend — almost — in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.
