Play preview: “Almost, Maine”

This year’s fall play, “Almost, Maine,” is described by drama teacher and director Patrick Posada as a “real romantic comedy.” It is about how people are going through different relationships in Maine. The play has nine different scenes each containing about two to three people with a few props.

According to Posada the “play [will be] in round, meaning the audience will be sitting on all four sides of the stage.” Each audience member will have a different experience based on their seating. They will get to see all the characters in different angles.

This is the not the first time the school is performing theatre-in-the-round. However, for senior Brizeth Lomeli, who has been in every school play since she was a freshman, this is her first experience with this staging.    

“Instead of having gaps from everyone in the whole play and bonding with everybody together, you’re really focusing on the other partner you have and that’s all you have,” Lomeli said.

Even though the actors do not perform together all at the same time, the whole play is connected to each scene. “Almost, Maine” will open on Nov. 1 at 3:30 p.m and will continue playing on Nov. 2-3 at 3:30 p.m. On Nov. 3, there will also be another show at 7 p.m and the final  show will be on Nov. 4 at 7 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the student bank or from a cast member. The regular prices for the tickets are $7 with an ASB card, $9, or $12 at the door. The play will be performed in the Little Theater.
