Cast selected for production of 'Almost, Maine'

In keeping with the frigid weather conditions of western Pennsylvania, the romantic comedy "Almost, Maine” is the spring stage production of the Drama Club at Penn State New Kensington. Director Bill Mitas, instructor in theater arts, has selected a student cast for the three performances that run April 10 to 12 in the Forum Theatre.

The play, written by John Cariani, is a series of vignettes about love – falling in, falling out, unrequited – in the mythical town of Almost, Maine. With a fantastic view of the Aurora Borealis, the town is the northernmost place in the contiguous United States. The eight scenes are set on a cold night in the middle of winter, which should be a familiar setting for campus students.

The cast, currently in rehearsal, features Shannon McDonald, of Saltsburg; Nick DeRiso, of Murrysville; Trevor Arnett, of Verona; Dawn Fink, of Apollo; Jonathan Vertosick, of Tarentum; James Farley, of Vandergrift; Klase Danko, of New Kensington; Meghan Marsh, of Springdale; and Matt Mlynarski, of Lower Burrell.

In addition to Mitas, the crew includes stage manager Lauren Smith, of Ford City; lighting director Patrick Lang, of Pittsburgh; and sound director Sarah Mihelic.
