Streaming February 11 – 21

Almost, Maine

by John Cariani

Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the U.S. It’s almost in Canada. And it’s not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it almost doesn’t exist.

One cold, clear night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky, the residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend – almost – in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

Info to Make Streaming a Breeze: 

1. It works like coming to a show except that you get to watch the show on your phone, computer, tablet or smart TV from home. Select the date you wish to watch the show. When you purchase a ticket for one device you will be emailed instructions with one code – think of the code as a ticket that gets you into the online show. 

2. One device (one phone, one iPad, one TV, etc.) = one ticket. 

3. If two of you will be watching on one device, we would appreciate if you would purchase one ticket and make a donation for the second ticket (you will see a donation option after you click to purchase one device). 

4. 2021 Season Ticket Holders, please email us with the date you want to watch the show and how many devices you will be watching on. We will set it up for you.

We know that watching a play online will be a first for many of you. We are here to help. Please email us at info@ennispublictheatre.com or call 972.878.7529 with any questions.

Andrew Rally seems to have it all: celebrity and acclaim from his starring role in a hit television series; a rich, beautiful girlfriend; a glamorous, devoted agent; the perfect NY apartment; and the chance to play Hamlet in Central Park. As Andrew’s life starts to fall apart, the drunk and egoic ghost of John Barrymore (the most famous actor ever to play Hamlet) shows up to advise him.

The laughs are nonstop as Andrew wrestles with his conscience, Barrymore, his sword, and Hamlet.

In this tale of two bachelors, John “Jack” Worthing and Algernon “Algy” Moncrieff create alter egos named Ernest to escape their tiresome lives. They attempt to win the hearts of two women who, conveniently, claim to only love men called Ernest. The pair struggles to keep up with their own stories and become tangled in a tale of deception, disguise, and misadventure.

A trivial comedy for serious people, this masterpiece is probably the most famous of all comedies.

This riotously funny comedy follows three cousins as they attempt to throw a family reunion. Things spin hilariously out of control when a neighbor’s pet devours everything edible, a one-eyed suitor shows up to declare his love, and a shocking, high-stakes wager is made on who can bake the best red velvet cake.

As this fast-paced uproarious romp barrels toward its surprising climax, you’ll wish your own family reunion was this much fun!

This beloved musical tells the tale of young postulant Maria, whose free spirit has trouble fitting into the rules and regulations of the abbey. Commissioned by the Mother Abbess to serve as the governess for seven motherless children, Maria transforms the Von Trapp family home from a place of dour rules and regulations to one filled with joy, laughter, and music. In the process, Maria wins the hearts of all seven children – and their widower father, Captain Von Trapp.
