The North Shore High School Masquers’ presentation of “Almost, Maine” was a true success! This romantic comedy shown on November 20th and 21st took months of preparation and dedication from cast and crew members.
The play featured nine short stories of the lives of residents exploring love and loss in a remote town called Almost, Maine. Light and sound crew did an amazing job capturing visual and audio effects to create a valid representation of this town and the northern lights hanging overhead. As well as the costume crew incorporated specific garments to dress every actor and actress as realistically to the setting. This play was structured with clever surprise endings showing that not all relationships end happily.
Bravo to the cast and crew including Peter Tzotchev. Ella Oswald. Mathew Greco, Nicoletta Royal, Michael MacDonnell, Lena Kutscher, Danielle Smith, Thea Kraus, Alec Nation, Julia Reilly, Chris Lau, Will Laderer, Joseph Doyle, Thomas Yamond, Liz Zarb, Marianna Hoitt-Lange, David Swett, Cami Capello, and Gabe Temidis.
