In the mean time mark your calendars for these upcoming events:
Strawberry Hill Players present: Almost Maine: A Real Romantic Comedy.
It’s love: but not quite.
The town of Almost, Maine is different from your average American city. Located so far up north it can almost be considered a part of Canada, this town is simply a set of residents living in a territory they never got around to organizing.
In Almost, Maine, one is able to explore the lives of these residents on one magical night, where they experience the perils of love and loss in the strangest of ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded. And the lives for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same.

The Actor’s Nightmare by Christopher Durang
Bryce Drynan…Henry Irving
Cara Grasso…Dame Ellen Terry
Brianna Jean…Sarah Siddons
Ali Nassef…George Spelvin
Having casually wandered onstage, George is informed that one of the actors, Eddie, has been in an auto accident and he must replace him immediately. Apparently no one is sure of what play is being performed but George (costumed as Hamlet) seems to find himself in the middle of a scene from Private Lives, surrounded by such luminaries as Sarah Siddons, Dame Ellen Terry and Henry Irving. As he fumbles through one missed cue after another the other actors shift to Hamlet, then a play by Samuel Beckett, and then a climactic scene from what might well be A Man for All Seasons—by which time the disconcerted George has lost all sense of contact with his fellow performers. Yet, in the closing moments of the play, he rises to the occasion and finally says the right lines, whereupon make-believe suddenly gives way to reality as the executioner’s axe (meant for Sir Thomas Moore) instead sends poor George to oblivion—denying him a well-earned curtain call. This hilarious spoof details the plight of a stranger who is suddenly pushed on stage to replace an ailing actor.
