The Volcano School of Arts &Sciences invites the community to its annual Middle School Theatre Night at 6 p.m. today at the Kilauea Theater at Kilauea Military Camp in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
The classes will present four one-act productions.
Admission is free.
The fifth grade will present a Russian folk story, “The Frog Princess,” by Cathy Howard.
This charming tale is a lesson in acceptance.
The sixth grade will present a western melodrama, “Mine, All Mine or From Ghost Town to Kaboom Town,” by Denise K. Burr.
As with all melodramas, you will want to cheer the hero and boo the villain.
The seventh grade will be showcased in “The Brothers Grimm: Out of Order” by Flip Kobler and Cindy Marcus.
This comedy contains many favorite fairy tale characters, including Cinderella, Rapunzel, Hansel and Gretel, and some the lesser-known Grimm characters, such as Jorinda and Joringel, in a funny take on a community group putting on a show.
Finally, the eighth grade will present “Doc, Doc…Goose!” by Patrick Rainville Dorn, a fun romp with many favorite nursery rhyme characters.
