Columbia Heights High School

Presented by Columbia Heights Fine Arts Foundation
  • Comedy

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 organized. So it’s just…Almost.

One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, 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.

Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser

Frank Loesser’s brassy and immortal musical comedy about rolling the dice and falling in love under the bright lights of Broadway involves the unlikeliest of Manhattan pairings: a high-rolling gambler and a puritanical missionary, and a showgirl dreaming of the straight-and-narrow and a crap game manager who is anything but.

Guys & Dolls takes us from the bustle of Times Square to the dance clubs of Havana to the sewers of New York City as it demonstrate the great lengths to which a guy will go when he truly falls in love with a “doll.”

At first glance, A Year with Frog and Toad may seem merely an entertaining musical with catchy songs or a lovely memory of a well-loved book. But look deeper and you will be reminded of many wonderful and insightful truths.

The two friends realize and experience many things in their year together. They see the value and joy of their friendship, that there is beauty in silence and being alone, that despite their quirks or unique traits, they can accept themselves and others. They learn continuing to persevere, in spite of naysayers, can result in higher achievements than they thought possible. And they experience the inner joy that comes from doing a kind thing for another without wanting any recognition and that with the help of a good friend  fears can be faced.

Ah, love. Young and gooey, explosive and fiery, brotherly, unrequited, enduring. A Midsummer Night’s Dream revels in the myriad ways we find to love one another and the lengths we go in order to build and protect our most precious relationships.

Often called “an almost perfect play,” Shakespeare’s comedy tumbles out of the city into a fantastical wilderness of moonlight and magic as lovers and would-be poets  – seeking  freedom, romance and inspiration – stumble upon the forest realm of the fairy king and queen. What follows is a fast-paced, hilarious and heartfelt adventure where ridiculous antics lead to magical moments in unexpected ways.

One of Gilbert and Sullivan’s best loved works, The Pirates of Penzance is a hilarious farce of sentimental pirates, bumbling policemen, dim-witted young lovers and an eccentric Major-General. Set against the stark coast of Cornwall, England our story follows young Frederic, an orphan who has mistakenly been apprenticed to an ineffectual but raucous band of pirates. He disavows the pirates’ way of life and falls for the beautiful Mabel. Frederic’s melodious tones win over the heart of Major-General Stanley’s songbird daughter, Mabel, but when the Pirate King discovers that General Stanley has lied about being an orphan to keep the pirates from stealing all of his belongings and carrying off his bevy of beautiful daughters, an “ingenious paradox” may prevent the budding romance and lead to the death of “The very model of a modern Major-General.”
