CALIFORNIA CONSERVATORY THEATER PRESENTS:

Almost, Maine by John Cariani, directed by Rebecca Ennals Production runs February 4 - 27 On a cold, clear, moonless Friday 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, residents of Almost find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised; hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded. But the bruises heal and the hearts mend ... almost.
