For a show with an epic plot twist ending, head to Lewiston for “I and You.” The play centers around high school seniors Caroline (Emma Wisniewski) and Anthony (Londan Carlisle), who get paired up to do a report on Walt Whitman. “I and You” has been called both “life-affirming” and a “must-see” – twice, for some.

Louisa May Alcott’s 1868 novel continues to shine brightly, whether on the written page, on the silver screen or in musical form. Here’s a chance to see the latter in a production that features songs like “Our Finest Dreams,” “Five Forever,” “Off to Massachusetts” and “Sometimes When You Dream.” The lives of sisters Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March in Civil War America provide a rich, dramatic and emotional landscape that’s anything but timeworn.
