Marlborough – The newly formed theatre troupe Ghost Light Players will be hosting its inaugural show, “Almost, Maine” by John Cariani, at the end of March. Ghost Light Players was formed by Kat Alix-Gaudreau (Artistic Director) and Kim Beauchemin (Technical Director) to bring the arts to the MetroWest community.
Almost, Maine takes place on a cold winter's night, where the northern lights appear in a tiny, remote town in the northern-most part of Maine. On this night, the residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unusual and often hilarious circumstances. Although hearts break and bruises develop, these wounds heal in a show dubbed as a “midwinter night's dream.”
As the director, Kat Alix-Gaudreau appreciates the creative opportunities this show offers.
“Almost, Maine is a great show – it combines the humor of real relationships with the magic of a starry Northern night,” she said, “and gives the actors wonderful material to work with. As a director who loves to delve into a script and work with the cast to bring it to life, it doesn’t get much better than that!”
Almost, Maine will be performed March 23 and 24 at 8 p.m. and March 25 at 2 p.m. Performances will take place at the First Church in Marlborough, 37 High St. Marlborough. Tickets are $15 for general admission and $12 for senior citizens and children ages 12 and under. Ticket information is available at www.ghostlightplayers.com.
