The Blackburn College Department of Music & Theatre will present their fall production “Almost, Maine” in Bothwell Auditorium on Friday, September 29 and Saturday, September 30, at 7 pm. A third performance is scheduled for Sunday, October 1 at 2 pm. Tickets are $10 to the public and free to any Blackburn students, faculty and staff. The play is produced by Blackburn’s Department of Music and Theatre and will be directed by Dr. Collin Vorbeck, Professor of Theatre. 

Vorbeck explained, “Almost, Maine is one of the most popular plays produced by colleges and universities over the past decade. Students will perform a series of nine different yet interconnected scenes about friendship, comfort, love, and relationships.”  He continued, “I encourage everyone to join us and celebrate the different ways we make connections with each other through the stories shared by these characters in a fictional small town not too dissimilar from Carlinville.”
