Theatre Department Presents “Almost, Maine”
Thursday through Saturday, April 6th through 15th at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, April 9th at 2:00 p.m.
The calendar may say spring, but winter temperatures are still gripping the Hudson Valley, and the SUNY Ulster Theatre Department is portraying the events of one freezing cold night, for its production of “Almost, Maine.” The play runs Thursday through Saturday, April 6th through 15th at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, April 9th at 2:00 p.m. in the Quimby Theatre in Vanderlyn Hall, on the Stone Ridge Campus. There is a $10 suggested donation, and it’s Free for students.
Under the direction of Stephen Balantzian, Assistant Professor of Theatre and Coordinator of the SUNY Ulster Theatre Program, “Almost, Maine” is comprised of nine short plays by playwright John Cariani. They explore love and loss in a remote, mythical almost-town named Almost, Maine.
Balantzian says, “The students have responded well to the play. The cast is comprised of ten SUNY Ulster students, an alumna, and is supported by a dozen crew members. It's a real community effort and we're looking forward to presenting this incredible play about love and all of its complexities.”
SUNY Ulster Theatre students present several full-scale theatrical productions during the year. Theatre productions at SUNY Ulster are open to all students, regardless of their programs of study. They also present original programs of Reader's Theater in December and May. In addition, both student and professional touring groups are invited to the campus.
To date, “Almost, Maine” has been produced by more than 2,500 theater companies in the United States and by more than a dozen companies internationally, making it one of the most frequently produced plays of the past decade. Don’t miss the SUNY Ulster production.
The 500 seat Quimby Theater is the venue for student and professional theatrical productions, concerts, dance presentations, poetry readings, guest lectures and other featured events.
