Almost, Maine is a play about a place that's almost a town, whose inhabitants are almost real. It's in this twilight zone -- between real and imagined, between mystery and magic -- that eight actors play different couples who meet, fight, break up and discover their true destiny. Critics from coast to coast have praised the poignancy and surreal wonder of Almost, Maine's overlapping vignettes about the joys and dangers of love. A hit off-Broadway, this wintry romance now heads south to the Apolliad Theatre for an all-new production by the San Diego Mesa College Theatre Company.
Mesa College Theatre Company
The Mesa College Theater Company, a two year training program for Dramatic Arts Majors, has been producing quality shows and quality theater artists for over fifteen years. Individuals who become a part of Mesa College Theater Company get the unique opportunity of having hands-on theater training while working towards an AA degree. Utilizing a main stage theatre and a New York style black box theatre, students are involved in the experience of creating a show from the ground up. Students apply what they learn in their acting and design classes to produce two quality shows each semester--all shows are student acted, designed, built and crewed and one production each season is student directed. The four semester program provides students with a good foundation for successful transfer to four year programs such as San Diego State, UCSD, UCI, UCLA, San Francisco State, CSU Long Beach, Harvard's Acting Program, ACT, and the Miesner Institute. MCTC graduates are working in the film and television industries as well as holding position at the La Jolla Playhouse, the Old Globe Theater and the San Diego Repertory Theatre.
