Watch The Almost, Maine Trailer Here!

Ms. DuPuis’ TV class has made a fantastic and concise (less than 1 minute!) trailer for Almost, Maine which opens in two weeks. I would love for you to check it out and if you’d like to share it with your first period class, we would be grateful. The show has a total of 21 students in it, so this is just a small sampling of the cast. Enjoy!

Almost, Maine Is Almost Here!

The fall play, Almost, Maine, performs November 13-15 at 7pm and November 15 at 2pm. Please plan to join us for this sweet, funny production about the ups and downs of love in a little town.

21 talented actors make up the cast and over 20 dedicated students are assisting with the technical crew. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door ($10 for students). Students enrolled in Hammond theatre classes can purchase tickets for $5 with their ID at the door.
