Almost, Maine
Kings Park High School Fall Drama

December 1st at 4:00 p.m.
December 2nd & 3rd at 7:00 p.m.

The week after Thanksgiving, Kings Park High School drama students will perform in Almost, Maine- a romantic comedy.  The cast has been working diligently on the production since October.

Almost, Maine is the most frequently produced non-musical play for high schools in the country.

On November 14th, the cast was fortunate to be visited by the playwright John Cariani, who is also an award-winning actor.  He is best known to television viewers as Julian Beck in Law & Order.  On stage, he earned a Tony Award nomination for his performance in the 2004 Broadway revival of Fiddler on the Roof.  He recently starred in the hit Broadway musical Something Rotten! as Nigel Bottom.  John is currently performing in the Atlantic Theatre Company’s world premiere production of The Band’s Visit, which opens on December 8, 2016.

During his visit, Mr. Cariani gave acting tips to KPHS students and provided in-depth information on his creative method.  Students got a first-hand reflection on the process of writing the play and the origins of the characters and stories.

Almost, Maine will run from December 1st to December 3rd.  Over 75 students are involved- including stage crew and tech crew.  Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for students, and can be purchased at the door.  Senior Citizens are free on December 1st.   All proceeds will benefit future drama productions.
