Kaimuki Teens Present ‘Beauty IS A Beast’

Sometimes buildings labeled Luxury Apartments are anything but luxurious. A similar theme is at play in Kaimuki High School Performing Arts Center’s Beauty IS a Beast — a children’s fairy tale in which Beauty is a princess so spoiled that she’s become rather beastly.

The cast of 15 Kaimuki High students include lead actors “Hi‘iaka Kalilikane as Beauty, the princess who has to learn about inner beauty, and Ho‘okele Kalilikane as Honor, Beauty’s sweet, overlooked sister,” said director Jenn Thomas. “Both seniors were in KHSPAC’s children’s

show last year. Natasha Fehn, a junior and member of our advanced acting class, is Beauty’s Fairy Godmother, and sophomore Shad Church is Nick, the peasant who helps Beauty learn compassion for others. Last spring he was on the KHSPAC stage as Eugene in Grease.”

The show plays Oct. 20- 21 and 27-28 at the school auditorium; 7 p.m. Saturdays, 3 p.m. Sundays. Admission for keiki ages 3 to 4 is $3 (children under 3 are free), $10 for adults, and $5 for students, military and seniors.
