Lake Zurich High School submission

Lake Zurich High School Drama Department will begin its 2013-14 season with a production of "Almost Maine."

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 dance in the star-filled sky, Almost's residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways.

Through a series of nine vignettes, the performance visits various points on the colorful spectrum of love. Experience love's initial spark, and, in some cases, witness its quiet death.

Knees are bruised and hearts are broken, but bruises heal and hearts mend, almost, in this magical midwinter night's tale about love and often unintended consequences.

Show dates are Thursday, Friday and Saturday Nov. 7, 8 and 9, at 7:30 p.m. at the Lake Zurich High School Performing Arts Center, 300 Church St., Lake Zurich. Admission is $10 for adults and $8 for students and seniors. Online tickets can be reserved at www.lz95.net/pac.

More than 60 Lake Zurich High School students are involved onstage and behind the scenes, and they have been working on the show since early September. The onstage cast features 19 students, with others handling costuming, lights, sound, scenery, props and other logistics.
