Fall Production -- Almost Maine by John Carian
7:30 p.m.  Hofheimer Theatre, VWC Campus
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 hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost's residents 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.  Reservations recommended. Call 757.455.3381 or email tdhority@vwc.edu.
