Welcome to Almost, Maine, a town that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States—it’s almost in Canada. And it almost doesn’t exist. Because its residents never got around to getting organised. So, it’s just…Almost.

One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded. And life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same.

Almost, Maine: It’s love. But not quite.


Sunday July 28, 3pm

Monday July 29, 7pm


Fleigner Hall, 31-39 Highland Avenue, Oakleigh East, VIC 3166


Clayton Community Centre, 9–15 Cooke Street, Clayton VIC 3168


11-26 October 2019


Rehearsals will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings (7pm-9.30pm), along with Sunday afternoons (3pm-7pm). 

There will be a read-through on Tuesday August 6, with rehearsals commencing Sunday August 11.

All rehearsals will be at the audition venue (Fleigner Hall). 

Auditionees must be available from Sunday October 6 – Sunday October 13 for Tech Week.


We are looking for 4 – 8 actors within the age range of 25-45 years.

Almost, Maine is made up of nine short plays. Each one has a different set of characters with only two characters appearing in multiple plays – all others are unique to one of the plays.

This is a true ensemble production – each actor will play multiple roles, across different age ranges.

Each role will offer something different – the main thing we are looking for are actors who can show clear character differences and have a talent for black comedy. Interested actors must be comfortable with staged physical intimacy as well as unconventional stories.

Please note Standard American accents are required.


All auditions are by appointment only, in small groups (2 or more people). Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to complete paperwork.

To express your interest in auditioning, please forward a short CV and headshot by email to [email protected] by no later than Thursday July 25, specifying your preferred audition date (unless booked out, we are happy to accommodate your preference).
