SPA, Maine Masque to present ‘I’m Still Alive’ April 18–20 in Hauck

The University of Maine School of Performing Arts and Maine Masque will present the premiere production of “I’m Still Alive” April 18–20.

The original play by Mackenzie Peacock, a senior theatre and communications double major, will be performed at 7:30 p.m. April 18–20 and 2 p.m. April 20. Tickets, which are available online, are $10 or free with a student MaineCard.

The play tells the story of Will, a boy dealing with school bully Cam, and the death of his friend Johnny. When Johnny comes back into Will’s life as a ghost, they hatch a plan to get even with Cam.

Senior theatre major Noah Lovejoy directs the play.

“It has been an exciting challenge learning how to, as the director, take part in creating this world and providing each member of the cast with the tools to do so,” Lovejoy says. “I can’t wait to share this story, this world and these characters we’ve put so much heart into with the UMaine community that, over the past four years, has become nothing short of home.”

The cast includes Reed Davis, Peter Natali, Ethan Rhoad, Vanessa Graham, Katie Dupuis, Curran Grant, Ali Eaton, Jacob Siegel, William Bickford, Pooja Rawat, Natalie Lisnet, Connor Bolduc, Rose Michelson and Brennan Gunster.

Maine Masque is an independent group under the jurisdiction of University of Maine Student Government. It supports theatre activities with the School of Performing Arts. Maine Masque productions are produced and performed by UMaine students.
