On the heels of receiving 7 National Youth Art Awards for its 2018-2019 productions, Pelham Memorial High Schools’ Sock ‘n’ Buskin aims to build on their success with its upcoming production of John Cariani’s Almost Maine at the PMHS Auditorium in November.

On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights glow in the star-filled sky, the residents of Almost, Maine 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 about romance.  

For the last 4 years, Almost Maine has been the most produced high school play in North America!  

Directed by Tom Beck and Neil Schleifer, the show features Aidan Zusin, Malia McLellan, Bryan McFarland, Emma McNulty, Lance Brady, Vanessa Rosado, Camilla O’Keefe, Jack Denison, Oliver Tam, Jack Finegan, Meredith Heller, Arthur O’Sullivan, Caitlin Winston, Tommy Roche, Isabella Rosado, Soren Bushong, Katie Scott as well as an ensemble of others.

“It’s both a very smart and a very funny play about relationships,” says director Beck. “Playwright John Cariani shows us in warm and humorous ways that when we are in search of love, our hearts don’t always take the main path. Sometimes they take the road that’s almost main,” says Schleifer

Sock’n’Buskin will proudly present Almost Maine on Friday, November 22 and Saturday, November 23 at 7:30 pm with a matinee show on Sunday, November 24 at 2 pm. All tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students/children/senior citizens.  Please email [email protected] for information and reservations.
