almost main for webOne 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.

On February 12-14, the Mt. Vernon High School Drama Department will put on their very own production of the off-Broadway play “Almost, Maine.”

“We have a great cast for this show and I’m incredibly excited to welcome so many new faces to the program,” said director, Andrew Okerson.

This will be Okerson’s second show with MVHS following “The Drowsy Chaperone,” which took place this past November.

“Almost, Maine” is a 19-person show consisting of nine short skits in which couples fall in and out of love.

The show features:

Freshmen: Maggie Brown, Shana Stutz, and Skylar Mayes.

Sophomores: Felicity Kratky, Dequan Hamilton, Austin Jones, Sam Jobe

Juniors: Jacob Owens, Lauren Matson, Rylie Gendron, Chelsea Theobald, and Elijah Williams

Seniors: Colin Pool, Cheyenne Michael, Jake McCarty, Zane Roberts, Derek Bond, Danielle Van Winkle, and Stephani McDole

Ten West Center For the Arts in Fortville, Andrew’s non-profit organization will be performing the hit musical, “Grease”, in March, and stars many of the faces who will appear in “Almost, Maine”.
