ThunderRidge troupe stages winter play

Posted

Nine short plays focus on love and loss; nine couples show up for a scene each; and there are seven advanced theater students who serve as directors. Each play has a separate director.

It's “Almost, Maine,” ThunderRidge High School's winter play, set in the mythical town of Almost, Maine, created by playwright John Cariana, who won wide critical acclaim and comparisons to Thornton Wilder (“Our Town”).

Student directors are: Rachel Sanderson, Ethan Pierce, Lauren Rodda, Jeffrey Pincus, Grace Outlaw, Audrey Nelson and Ryan Lujan.

The play runs at 7 p.m., Jan. 18-20. The play opened in Portland, Maine in 2004, sold out — and garnered national attention. Said to include a bit of magical realism, the play offers a different, and entertaining, experience for students and audiences.

“One of the most appealing aspects of this show is the literal symbolism portrayed through all the scenes. In one scene, a character loses “hope” and literally becomes shorter …” according to student Thespian Elizabest Sinclair, this year's publicist.
