On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. In this whimsical approach to the joys and perils of romance, knees are bruised, hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend – almost – in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

Almost, Maine is comprised of 8 vignettes about love and the various emotions that can accompany it. These vignettes involve the various townspeople of the imaginary town of Almost, Maine, located in the wide open spaces of northern Maine, near Canada.

There are no specific characters to describe. This is an ensemble cast, and each cast member will play at least two separate roles. No accents please.

We are looking for 4 men and 4 women in their 30’s and 40’s to play the townspeople of Almost, Maine. Note: All roles are non-union and unpaid.

The show will be performed 4 weekends from January 26 – February 17, Fridays and Saturdays at 8PM and Sunday matinees at 2PM at the Greenbelt Arts Center.

For more information, please contact director Bob Kleinberg at bob.kleinberg@gmail.com, or see http://www.greenbeltartscenter.org/Default.asp#audition

It’s Christmas in Tuna, the third smallest town in Texas, where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies! Radio station OKKK news personalities Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie report on various Yuletide activities. It’s 24 hours before Christmas and the delightfully eccentric characters of Tuna attempt to cope with seasonal traumas such as the disaster prone little theatre production of A Christmas Carol, and a yard-decorating contest being sabotaged by a mysterious Christmas phantom.

Auditioners will be asked to do cold readings from the script. Please bring any conflicts you have for September through November, resume, and picture, if available. The play opens November 3 and runs weekends through November 19. You may email the director, Ken Kienas, at kkienas@yahoo.com with any questions.
