Last weekend we brought a cutting of "Almost, Maine" to the Minnesota Association of Community Theaters Festival in Dassel-Cokato. It was our first time participating. In addition to our performance, we were able to take workshops and watch other theaters from around the state do their shows. On Sunday morning there was an awards brunch. We were so pleased to receive a 3rd place plaque for our show! Not only that, two of our "duos" took home excellence in acting awards. Congratulations to the original cast, the festival cast, and the acting award winners Blake Norby and Barbara Benson Keith and also Ryan Lee and Pete Keith!

Have you come to our Silent Movies in the Park After Dark and thought "I'd like to try to do that!" Well, this is your chance! We are going to take six of you and teach you everything you need to know to make a movie! The movies will be shown in the park. This will be super fun and a chance for you to learn a really fun skill for free! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested or have questions. Don't delay - we anticipate this filling up quickly! Thanks!

Synopsis: 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. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded. And life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same.
