Comedy at VAC
Bring your blue tarp, your sustainably-built bra-bird feeder and join Sherri Carden, the Puna Princess, for big rural living laughs at the Volcano Art Center Dec. 15, at 7 p.m. and Dec. 16, at 2 p.m.
Carden’s a seasoned comedienne and speaker, having performed at the LOL: Ladies Out Loud in Volcano in September, the Akebono Theater, Honoka’a People’s Theater, Pahoa Village Cafe and Hilo Town Tavern. She attributes her confidence and speaking skills to Toastmasters, where she was the past president.
As the Puna Princess, she shares stories about marriage, farm life, the wisdom of donkeys, and how to keep recycling items until they return to the soil. She gives tips on how to make dog prints fashionable, and ponders how Puna can have mud but no dirt. Her show will highlight unique homemade gifts for holiday giving.
Carden’s Puna Princess character started when she became the Los Angeles County 4-H Queen when she was 17. “4-H was where I learned about farming, self-sufficiency, and sustainability.
“When I arrived in Hawaii, I had a big dream of having a farm,” she said. She imagined that she’d grow vegetables, harness the donkey to her cart, and deliver food to her neighbors. Learning about the realities of farm life, especially in Puna, is the source for Carden’s stories and laughter.
