Now Playing: Whetstone High School’s Fall Play will Have you Falling in Love all Over Again, and Again

The heart wants what the heart wants. And right about now who doesn’t want to see some incredible theater at a local high school?

Whetstone High School’s Production of Almost, Maine opened at 7 PM on Friday November 15 (after a quick preview performance for the student body at the end of the school day). Chris Ray has managed to inspire another brilliant performance from some extremely talented Whetstone actors.

The play will be presented Saturday November 16 at 7 PM and a final matinee performance takes place at 2 PM Sunday the 17.
