There are FOUR news items below.  Jump on board York Drama this week!

Almost Maine  ~  Thursday October 22nd - Sunday October 25th ~

York Drama is proud to present its fall play, Almost, Maine, as the first  production in the 2020-2021 season “Lift With Love.”  Due to the ongoing challenges of Covid-19, we have partnered with On The Stage to bring you this production in a virtual format.  Tickets, or in this case, virtual links, will be purchased online only.  

Almost, Maine, a place that's so far north, it's almost not in the United States.  And it’s not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it almost doesn’t exist. They do reach out for connections though, just like we are doing right now. In this time of the pandemic, there is nothing we need more than human connection. York Community High School’s production of John Cariani’s Almost, Maine, is set in the present moment, performed completely in masks and with enforced social distancing.  As we are all too aware, this makes human connection that much more difficult.  On this cold, clear, winter night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine, grapple with that obstacle and find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and hearts mend as those connections are forged — almost.


Exact dates and showtimes are as follows:

Thursday, October 22, at 7:30 p.m.
Friday, October 23, at 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, October 24, at 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, October 25, at 7:30 p.m.

 

Tickets can be purchased online at ychsdramaboxoffice.com

BE THE GOOD

York Drama will continue its commitment and strive toward a more expansive sense of empathy.  Ignorance and violence are not acceptable in any form.  The question “Who am I besides how I look to you?” is more relevant today than ever.  In addition to working with our own students, we will be extending the “Who am I?” project of this last year out to the community at large as well as communities beyond Elmhurst in order to collaborate and educate our students and ourselves on the issues of inequality, prejudice, hate, and ignorance.

See with the eyes of another.  Hear with the ears of another.  Feel with the heart of another.
