Almost, Maine is showing here at Parkway Playhouse June 28-July 7, 2024! We reached out to actor, Lindsey Shoemaker about her experience working on this production.

What’s your favorite part of this show and why?

My favorite part of Almost, Maine is the diversity of the story-telling and capturing different types of love across age and gender.

What about this show do you think will stick with audiences?

Audiences will be able to relate to these characters in many different ways. The production not only focuses on falling in love, but also falling out of love, finding yourself, and healing. It is all about the human experience presented in a humorous, heartfelt way.

How excited are you to be working with this incredible cast?

I am very honored and excited to be apart of this team! We have had so many laughs rehearsing these scenes and cannot wait to hear the audience laugh alongside us!

What have you loved about working on this production?

I loved working with such funny and incredible people on this production! I also enjoyed strengthening my acting skills through thoughtful feedback and direction.

How did you get into theatre?

I got into theatre because I had a lot of energy, but no competitive drive to be in sports. I auditioned for my first theatre production in sixth grade and have been on stage ever since.

What’s your favorite thing to do in the area?

My favorite things to do in the area are book shopping at Plott Hound Books and The Book Cellar (Friends of the Library), hiking at Mt. Mitchell State Park, attending craft shows, and joining the monthly local author meetups.

What have you loved so far about working with Parkway Playhouse?

It is truly a team effort at the Parkway Playhouse. I love seeing how everyone comes together to make a production shine.
