Last Gas

by John Cariani
Directed by Coreen Janetzke

June 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, & 26, 2021 at 8:00PM
June 20 & 27, 2021 at 2:00PM

Randy Benge (Dwight Paradis), Kathy Hyland (Cherry-Tracy Pulcifer), Bennett Ladowitz (Troy Paradis-Pulcifer), Thom Ogilvie (Guy Gagnon), Bethany Schoeff (Lurene Legassey Soloway), & Christopher Thomas (Nat Paradis)

Nat Paradis is a Red Sox-loving part-time dad who manages Paradis's Last Convenient Store, the last convenient place to get gas - or anything - before the Canadian border to the north and the North Maine Woods to the west. When an old flame returns to town, Nat gets a chance to rekindle a romance he gave up on years ago. But sparks fly as he's forced to choose between new love and old. Last Gas takes a hilarious and heartbreakingly hard look at love lost and found, and at what it means to "get back to happy."

Due to adult themes and situations, this show is recommended for mature audiences.

Board Members Elected

Congratulations to our newest board members, Hope Bailey and Jeremy Harrison – who were elected as Trustee 1 and 3, respectively, during Curtain Players May 25 general membership meeting. Kathy Hyland and Jeanine Joseph were also elected as Vice President and Treasurer, respectively, re-upping their commitments to serve on the Board of Directors.

The four were nominated ahead of the membership meeting, and voted in to their two-year terms by members present at the online meeting. The four positions were uncontested as no nominations were made from the floor.

Bailey, Harrison, Hyland, and Joseph will serve on the Board of Directors from July 1, 2021 – June 30, 2023.

Four members of the Curtain Players Board of Directors are elected by vote of the general membership each May, and serve staggered two year terms. Nominations are taken at the April board meeting.

Next year, the seats for President, Secretary, Trustee 2, and Trustee 4 will be up for election.
