Join the Howell High School Drama Department on a trip to the mythical town of Almost, Maine this November. Set on a cold night in the middle of winter, “Almost, Maine” is a collection of short scenes featuring various residents of the town falling in and out of love in various unexpected ways. The school will present the play at 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 3, and Saturday, Nov. 4; and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 5. All shows are at the Rod Bushey Performing Arts Center.

“We are excited to bring ‘Almost, Maine’ to Howell High School. The play has been one of the top performed high school plays for the past several years,” said Amanda Malo, Howell High School drama teacher and director of the play. “What is different about ‘Almost, Maine’ is that it is a series of scenes rather than a typical play where each scene builds off the last. The Performing Arts department at HHS has a strong history of offering performances from a variety of genres welcoming audience members of all ages. This year’s performance, ‘Almost, Maine’ is a romantic comedy, and we’d like to share with those planning on attending that it is most suitable for young adults.”

Advanced sale tickets are $11 for adults and $9 for students and will be available for purchase from the Howell High School main office and Schafer’s House of Music beginning Oct. 25. The price of tickets will increase $1 when purchased at the door.
