About Almost, Maine
Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States. It’s almost in Canada. And it’s not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it almost doesn’t exist. One cold, clear, winter night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine, find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.
The Carmel Apprentice Theatre draws together theatre veterans coming to play that role of a lifetime, with apprentices curious to perform for the first time in their life. Fearless artists and shy apprentices will perform alongside each other to create great theatre, great community and great fun.
You don’t have to audition to be cast in our shows! Just register and you can be a part of our show*. At Evaluations, you will have the chance to show us what you can do, and tell us what you would like to do in the show.
Rehearsals will generally be three or four days a week. Some set, prop, and costume work days will be scheduled as well (likely Saturdays).
*Previously, Carmel Apprentice Theatre was a tuition-based program. However, thanks to a generous grant from the Carmel Arts Council, the tuition fee to participate in our productions has been eliminated! Thank you for helping us give community members more access to our programs!
