Almost, Maine
Minot State University's Theatre Arts Department's fall production, "Almost, Maine," is almost here!

"John Cariani's Almost, Maine is a series of nine amiably absurdist vignettes about love, with a touch of good-natured magic realism ... This is a beautifully structured play, with nifty surprise endings (most but not all of them happy) ... Mr. Cariani describes the play's subject as 'falling in and out of love'. It is just as much about pain," according to the New York Times from a 2013 production. This smart, funny, and emotionally relatable show, directed by Dr. Aili Davidson Smith, and written by John Cariani, will be performed in Aleshire Theater in Hartnett Hall on the Minot State University Campus from Thursday, October 11th through Saturday, October 13th, at 7:30pm.

Aleshire Theater is located in Hartnett Hall on the Minot State University Campus directly across from the dome.

All evening performances begin at 7:30 p.m. The box office opens 30 minutes before the start of each performance. Tickets are general admission, and reservations are not necessary. No one will be turned away! Ticket prices: $10, free for MSU students, faculty and staff with current MSU I.D.
