MSJ students shine on stage

Mount Saint Joseph Academy's Shoestring Theater Company preformed John Cariani's "Almost, Maine" on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 30 and Dec. 1. The play presented eight short stories all happening on a cold winter night when the Northern Lights are out, way up in the middle of nowhere Maine.

The characters live in the same small township, are regular, ordinary folks who are struggling in various ways to find themselves in the world and a person to share it with. They all know each other and together form a composite community of real people who are truly and honestly dealing with the toughest thing there is to deal with in life: love.

Mount Saint Joseph Academy is a college preparatory Catholic high school located at 127 Convent Ave., Rutland, Vermont, specializing in educating the mind and spirit for more than a century. For more info visit www.msjvermont.org.
