AUDITIONS for ALMOST, MAINE – 11/17 & 11/18 at 7pm
by John Cariani
Directed by Kit Colbourn
Audition Date: Sunday November 17 & Monday November 18 at 7pm
It’s midwinter in the not-really-organized town of Almost, Maine, and the average temperature is minus 3° but we find warmth in the cold, under the glow of the northern lights. This very human play takes a look at love, connection, and disconnection in a genuine, funny, and sometimes awkward way. And isn’t that just like love in all its forms?
A short contemporary monologue is encouraged and will be heard, but not required.
Callbacks, if necessary, will take place on Monday the 18th. Everyone will be informed of results afterwards individually.
Please direct any questions to the director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
