Almost, Maine

Midview High School drama students are preparing to bring their talents to the stage and entertainment to the local community. This year, the district will offer a special daytime showing of its fall play for Midview seniors aged 60 and over to enjoy.

The high school stage will premiere John Cariani’s play,  Almost, Maine. Comprised of nine short plays, this romantic comedy explores love and loss in a remote mythical “almost-town” called Almost, Maine. The play's official website explains, “One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways.”

The special showing for senior citizens will be held on Friday, Nov. 11 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Midview High School K Gym. The event is free of charge and will include lunch during intermission. Those interested in attending should RSVP to Sue Homoki at 440-748-5343 or

“Attending a play is a great activity for people of all ages,” said Midview High School Assistant Principal Jean Capacetti. “An incredible amount of work goes into producing a play. We want to ensure all residents can enjoy the show at times convenient for them and provide opportunities for our drama students to receive the recognition they deserve.”

The high school will also run evening and afternoon showings open to the public on Nov. 11 and 12 from 7-9 p.m. and Nov. 13 from 1-3 p.m. Tickets can be purchased closer to the showings on the district website.

Over 5,000 theatre companies have produced Almost, Maine in the past decade, making it one of the most frequently produced plays in the United States. To learn more about Almost, Maine, please visit
