Auditions for Lincoln Trail College’s fall production of “Almost, Maine” by John Cariani are set for 6 p.m. Aug. 26 and 27 in the Zwermann Arts Center Theater at the College in Robinson, Ill.
The play tells the story of nine couples and their complicated relationships, set against the backdrop of a small town in northern Maine.
Each scene takes place at the same time and tells the story of what happens to people in a heartbeat — one moment in time. The play can be performed by as few as four actors and as many at 19, although 18 actors, at least 16 years or older, are preferred.
The couples include: Pete and Ginette, who have been dating for a little while; East, a repairman, and Glory, a hiker; Jimmy, a heating and cooling guy, and Sandrine, his ex-girlfriend and a salty waitress; Marvalyn, a woman good at protecting herself, and Steve, an open, kind fellow; Gayle and Lendall, long-time boyfriend and girlfriend; Randy and Chad, two country boys; Phil, a working man, and Marci, his hardworking wife; Hope, who has traveled the world, and a Man, who has not; and Rhonda, a tough woman, and Dave, the not-so-tough man who loves her.
Audition packets are available in the LTC Performing Arts Office and also online by searching “Almost Maine script.” Actors need attend only one audition session.
Performances of “Almost, Maine” are set for 7 p.m. Oct. 11, 12, 18 and 19.
