Musical to highlight history
Fourth- and fifth-graders at Hawaii Preparatory Academy will present “U.S. Constitution, Revivor: Philadelphia” at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 5.
The musical performance, which is free and open to the public, will be held at Gates Performing Arts Center on the school’s Upper Campus.
“U.S. Constitution, Revivor: Philadelphia” is presented in conjunction with the students’ U.S. Constitution unit. The play is written by John Heath and Ron Fink of Bad Wolf Press; HPA’s Lower School music teacher Georgia Polakova directs.
Here’s the story: The exciting hit reality show, “Revivor,” takes on its most challenging venue yet — Philadelphia. The contestants are the actual writers and framers of the U.S. Constitution, competing to be the last Founding Father standing.
HPA’s young thespians have conjured up the Founding Fathers so the audience can witness the birth of the nation. Follow these Revivors as they explain, justify, and argue how they contributed to the making of the Constitution.
This is the first in a series of musical productions by HPA’s Lower School students. The second- and third-grade classes will present the next performance at 1:45 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 30. For more information, call 885-2501 or 885-2500.
