College Drama Offers Extraordinary Fish Tale
By PAIGE TAKEYA
Fishing and eel-slaying don’t come off as typical Valentine’s Day fare, but Windward Community College’s Theatre 260 (Dramatic Production) students will make it so with their debut performance of Moses Goods’ The Charge of ‘Ai’ai at Paliku Theatre this weekend and next.
Directed by WCC drama instructor Nicolas Logue, this keiki-aimed show relates the Maui story of fisherman Ku’ulakai, his son ‘Ai’ai and the troubles that stir for the family after they kill a gigantic eel. It is the college’s first Hawaiian Youth Theatre production.
The play runs from Friday through Sunday and Feb. 21-23. The curtain goes up at 7:30 p.m.
Fridays and Saturdays with 4 p.m. Sunday matinees.
Tickets cost $15 general admission, while students, seniors and military pay $10. Pay at the box office or by calling 235-7310 (a $1 fee may apply) or by visiting etickethawaii.com (a $3 fee may apply).
