Sylvan Lake students prepare for opening night of ‘Almost, Maine”

The students of H.J. Cody have been hard at work for the last couple months learning lines, building sets and setting lights for the drama department’s production of “Almost, Maine”.

The production is set up of various loosely connected scenes, or vignettes, which depict life, love and heart break in the town of Almost, Maine.

Along with the work of the students, and director Jacqui Renwick, the production has also benefited from the work and dedication of H.J. Cody staff members and community members such as Sam Mielke as production assistant, Janet Stoesz as costume mistress, and Jeff and Jodi Moulton who have taken on building the set.

The lights turn on for opening night on Nov. 21 at 7 p.m. in the The Stevenson Performing Centre at H.J. Cody.

The play runs Nov. 21, 22, 23, 28, 29, 30 and Dec.1 at 7 p.m. with two matinees on Sat., Nov. 24 and Dec. 1 at 1 p.m.
