BPCC Performing Arts Theater Program Announces Production of Almost, Maine

The Bossier Parish Community College Theater Program and the Cavalier Players announce their spring show, Almost, Maine. The play is written by John Cariani and consists of nine plays that explore love and loss in the mythical quasi-town called Almost, Maine.

Performances are scheduled for February 24, 25, 26 and March 3, 4, and 5 at 7:30 p.m. and February 27 and March 6 at 2 p.m. at the Stephen W. Slaughter Theater in Building C on the BPCC Campus, 6220 East Texas Street, Bossier City, LA.

Synopsis: Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place so far north it’s almost not in the United States. It’s almost in Canada. And it’s not quite a city, because its inhabitants have never managed to organize themselves. So it almost doesn’t exist. On a cold, clear winter’s night, as the Northern Lights soar in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine find themselves falling in love and falling in love in unexpected and hilarious ways. The knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But bruises heal and hearts mend — almost — in this delightful dream of a winter’s night.

The BPCC Theater production of Almost, Maine is directed by the Dean of Communications and Performing Arts, Dr. Ray Scott Crawford. The cast includes James Upton, Jasmine Jones, Josue Escobar, Candice Lott, Zachary Tyler, Sarah Johnson, Sara Foster, Cason Smith, Matthew Fultz and Aubrey Brummett.
