One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways.

Tickets are available in advance online for $8 until November 12. After that, they can be purchased for $12 online or at the door. Tickets and information are available at chstheatre.org.
