The Skidmore College Department of Theater has announced its Fall 2012 black box production, ALMOST, MAINE by John Cariani, directed by Lary Opitz. Performances are October 19-21 and 25-28, 2012. All shows are in the Janet Kinghorn Bernhard Theater at 8:00pm, except for Sunday matinees at 2:00pm.
On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost's residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But The Bruises heal, and the hearts mend – almost – in this delightful midwinter night's dream.
From Director Lary Opitz: “Love is messy, but we all need it. ALMOST, MAINE is a fable about the joys and tribulations of love – what it means to win, to keep and to lose love. Reality and magic combine to produce an enchanting and whimsical tale, and I hope that our audiences will feel free to laugh and cry with us.”

The Skidmore Theater Department is a pre-professional program that offers students the opportunity to pursue the serious study of the theater arts within a liberal arts setting. Courses within the department afford training in the basic demands of the discipline—physical and vocal control, technique in acting and directing, technical and design skills—as well as the opportunity for advanced study, practical production experience, study abroad, and off-campus internships. The college liberal arts requirements help the student to understand the moral, intellectual, and political context in which any artist practices.
