Thirteen UW-River Falls students have roles in the upcoming University Theatre performance of "Almost, Maine," a romantic comedy written by John Cariani.
Performances are set for Feb. 23-25, 28, 29, and March 1-3 in the Syse Theatre in the Kleinpell Fine Arts building on campus. All performances begin at 7:30 p.m.
On a clear moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems. Nine stories of romance take place on a single night in the remote mythical town of Almost, Maine.
Cariani gives us a glimpse of what the people are like in a small-town in northern New England. He draws from his experiences growing up in Presque Isle, Maine, where the people are known to be honest and true, not cynical, and smart. They wonder about things. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky, Almost's residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways.
Cast from River Falls includes Xander Toftness as Lendall/Randy, and Anton Yelk as Man.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors (60+) and $5 for UWRF students with ID and children (12 and under). Some age appropriate material is implied.
