Last Gas

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."

Save the Date – Annual Membership Meeting / Elections: May 25

Curtain Players will hold its annual membership meeting, where the theatre will elect four members to the Board of Directors, at 7 p.m. on May 25. This year's meeting will be held via Zoom.

You are considered part of the Curtain Players membership if you have, during the 2020-2021 season: participated in any production, volunteered at the theater in any capacity, served on any committees, or made a donation of $20 or more to Curtain Players.

In addition to the election, the annual meeting also offers an opportunity for the membership to gather to hear a "state of the theater" update about the organization.

The four board positions up for election this year include: Vice President, Treasurer, Trustee 1, and Trustee 3. The following members have been nominated to these seats for the May 25 election:

Kathy Hyland for Vice President (incumbent)
Jeanine Joseph for Treasurer (incumbent)
Hope Bailey for Trustee 1
Jeremy Harrison for Trustee 3

Nominations will also be taken from the floor during the membership meeting.

Curtain Players board members serve two-year terms, and the members elected to these positions will hold these seats for the 2021-2022 and 2022-2023 seasons (the President, Secretary, and Trustees 2 & 4 are halfway through their two-year terms and will not be up for election until 2022). The board meets once per month and all members are welcome at the monthly meetings. Those interested in attending one of the monthly meetings can email

Information on how to attend the May 25 Annual Membership Meeting will be communicated via the website, Curtain Players social media, and the Curtain Players email newsletter. Members can also email with questions.
