The Miner League Theatre Players at Missouri University of Science and Technology will perform “Almost, Maine” by John Coriani this month.

Performances will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 9; Friday, Feb. 10; and Saturday, Feb. 11, and a matinee at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 12. All performances will take place in the Black Box Theatre in Room 143 Castleman Hall, located at the corner of 10th and Main streets in Rolla.

“This is the perfect show just before Valentine’s Day; the play consists of nine unique love stories, all taking place in Almost, Maine, a fictitious but very special place,” says Jeanne Stanley, associate teaching professor of arts, languages and philosophy at Missouri S&T and director of the play. “We have the pleasure of working with a great mix of students, which gives us a great portraiture of couples in the scenes. The show is a comedy, but the laughter is in the humanity of each character.”

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children and Missouri S&T students with valid ID. Tickets can be purchased at the door prior to performances.
