Lovers fall in and out of love in unexpected ways during theater production at Lycoming College

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – The Lycoming College Theatre Department will present John Cariani’s “Almost, Maine” from Oct. 5 through 8 in the Mary L. Welch Theatre. All shows begin at 8 p.m. and are open to the public.


Directed by Kristi Good, the show opens on a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, where 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. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend — almost — in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

According to the New York Daily News, the show is “sweet, poignant, and witty. Nearly perfect. ‘Almost, Maine’s’ charm is real. [It] packs wit, earns its laughs and, like love, surprises you.”

Tickets are free for Lycoming students, faculty and staff. Public ticket prices for all shows are $10 for general admission and $8 for students and seniors. The Box Office opens 10 days prior to the opening night of each production and remains open throughout the show’s run. Tickets can also be purchased online at tickets.lycoming.edu when the Box Office opens.

Upcoming shows include Paula Vogel’s play “The Baltimore Waltz” from Nov. 16 through 19, Engelbert Humperdinck’s opera “Hansel and Gretel” from Feb. 17 and 18, and Patrick Barlow’s play “The 39 Steps” from April 5 through 8.

“Almost, Maine” replaces the show previously announced for the October time frame.
