Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States.  It’s almost in Canada.  And it’s not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized.  So it almost doesn’t exist.  One cold, clear, winter night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine, find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways.  Knees are bruised.  Hearts are broken.  But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter’s night dream.     Rated PG-13

“Try To Remember” a time when this romantic charmer wasn’t enchanting audiences around the world.  The Fantasticks is a funny and romantic musical about a boy, a girl, and their meddling fathers.  The narrator, El Gallo, asks the audience to use their imagination and follow him into a world of moonlight and magic.  The boy and girl fall in love, grow apart, and finally find their way back to each other after realizing the truth in El Gallo’s words that, “without a hurt, the heart is hollow.”     Rated PG
