Franklin Footlight Presents “Almost Maine”

March 15 to 18 at Franklin Opera House

Press Release

On a cold, clear, moonless 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, Almost residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night's dream.
This straight play is bound to delight audiences with it's simple message of love and timing. Featuring a host of local talents from the Lakes Region, both onstage and off, the show is bound to strike a chord with people of all ages. Being overseen by lifelong Franklin resident and Footlight President John Masse, each scene featured is directed by a first time director to Footlight, including Lori Ingham, Troy Lucia, Ryan Clark, Chelsea Field, Karielle Anzaldi, Koralee LaFlamme and Christie Martin. Produced by Julie Finley, this stellar team is ready to warm your hearts and make you think.
The show runs Thursday through Saturday, March 15, 16 and 17 at 7:30 PM, and on Sunday, March 18 at 2 PM. Tickets are $14 for seniors and students, and $16 for general admission, and can be purchased either by calling (603) 934-1901, or online at
