Welcome to The Actors Theater -
Opening soon: "Almost, Maine" written by John Cariani, directed by Melinda Milligan
"Almost", Maine is a remote little town somewhere in northern Maine. Here, if you don't know someone, you do know someone who does. Sound familiar?
This December 6, 7, 8, 13, 14 and 15th, the Actor's Theater of Orcas Island presents its holiday show- "Almost, Maine". This is a tale of what goes on in a small town one midwinter night when the Northern Lights appear, having surprising and magical effects on its residents. Love appears, slumbers, blooms and ignites.
Nineteen Orcas actors portray the friends and neighbors of Almost, Maine, in a play one reviewer has called "a cross between "Our Town" and "The Twilight Zone... ". Almost Maine is directed by Melinda Milligan with Lynda Saunders as Stage Manager
Two weekends only-7:30pm at the Grange stage. Tickets $10, available at Darvill's and at the door. You can also click the link to the left or buy tickets on-line.

Coming up in February:
Moonlight and Magnolias
by Ron Hutchinson
Directed by Doug Bechtel
1939 Hollywood is abuzz. Legendary producer David O. Selznick has shut down production of his new epic, Gone with the Wind, a film adaptation of Margaret Mitchell's novel. The screenplay, you see, just doesn't work. So what's an all-powerful movie mogul to do? While fending off the film's stars, gossip columnists and his own father-in-law, Selznick sends a car for famed screenwriter Ben Hecht and pulls formidable director Victor Fleming from the set of The Wizard of Oz. Summoning both to his office, he locks the doors, closes the shades, and on a diet of bananas and peanuts, the three men labor over five days to fashion the screenplay for one of the most successful and beloved films of all time.
Moonlight and Magnolias will open on February 21st and close on March 9th.
