UH-Hilo troupe stages ‘HAUNT!’
The University of Hawaii at Hilo Performing Arts Center features the UH-Hilo Acting Troupe in ‘HAUNT!,’ ghost stories from around the world, on Thursday and Friday, April 11-12, at 7:30 p.m., and on Sunday, April 14, at 2 p.m. in the PAC.
“The troupe begins with an exorcism at Waipio Valley and ends with what might just be Pele disappearing from a car in a ride on the Hamakua Coast,” said Director Jackie Pualani Johnson. “In between, the raconteurs will perform eerie tales from Japan, China, Iraq, Germany, England and Mexico.
The stories, recommended for audiences 9 years old and older, are staged to terrify in one moment and generate giggles in the next!”
Actors include Performing Arts majors Karla Ahn, Willyam Hodson, Alyssa Lassiter, Peter Veseskis and Denyse Woo-Ockerman, who are joined by graduates Rob Hunt and Angela Nakamura.
Blesson Allen, a political science major, auditioned and landed roles in the Troupe along with community actors Joyce Alcouloumre, Wolf Daniel Braun, Tyler Gee, Joann Hale and Dickie Motherwell. Geoff Staton is assistant director and Apollo Harris is technical director.
Tickets are reserved seating and priced at $12/general, $7/discount and $5 for UH-Hilo/Hawaii Community College students and children up to age 17, and are available by calling the UH-Hilo box office at 974-7310 or ordering online at artscenter.uhh.hawaii.edu.
