Albert Lea Community Theatre continues its 57th season with the romantic comedy “Almost, Maine” March 9–18 at the Marion Ross Performing Arts Center.

Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the U.S. 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 night’s dream.

Cast members are Patrick Bird, Jon Cochran, Kristan Dye, Brian Mattson, Emma McColley, Lyle Sorensen, Michelle Supalla, Heather Torley, Samantha Weir, Kristi White and Aaron Zogg.
