ALMOST MAINE is a play, but not quite…it almost is. It’s actually a series of nine vignettes that flow in and out of one another touching on the themes of love and human connection. The play itself takes place in a small town found very far north in the state of Maine, so far that it doesn’t even exist. Plus, the folks of Almost, Maine, never quite get around to incorporating it as a town so it just becomes…almost a town. Additionally, the theme throughout the play is wrapped around people fall in and out of love, but not quite…almost. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky, the residents of the town find themselves in unexpected situations with surprise endings that can be poignant and often time hilarious. Love can hurt so knees get bruised. Hearts get broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful comedy.

PIPPIN - Heir to the Frankish throne, the young prince, Pippin, is in search of the secret to true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father, King Charlemagne the Great). In the end Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the un-extraordinary moments that happen every day. With an infectiously unforgettable score written by musical theatre giant, Stephen Schwartz (Wiked, Godspell, Children of Eden), Pippin has been successfully produced on stages ranging from High School to Broadway. Sweeping the New York Awards circuit (Tony, Drama Desk, Drama League, Outer Critics Circle) Pippin continues to captivate and appeal to the young at heart throughout the world.
