The trouble with most of us is that we would rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism." --Norman Vincent Peale

UWRF theatre open tonight with "Almost, Maine"

The University Theatre play "Almost, Maine" opens tonight in the Syse Theatre, KFA, at 7:30 p.m. Senior Zach Svoboda as "Pete" and Junior Heide Dudley as "Ginette" star in the romantic comedy on a clear moonless night in the middle of winter in Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Additional performances are Feb. 24-25, 28-29 and March 1-3. Tickets are $10/adults, $8/seniors (60+) and $5 for UWRF students with ID and children 12 and under.
