Wahiawa-based Troupe Mounts Play At Paliku
Diamond in the Rough Productions will present Alice in Wonderland March 27-29 at Paliku Theatre, featuring nearly 50 youths islandwide, including Skylar Santana of Kaneohe.
It was easy to choose Santana at the tryouts, according to director Kristi Kashimoto-Rowbottom. “Skylar is only 7 years old, yet was outstanding in her audition, so was NOT cast in the ‘baby’ ensemble,” she said. “She is playing a variety of roles, including a featured dancer, and is keeping up with the teens and adults around her!”
Kashimoto-Rowbottom, who also operates Applause! Performance Academy in Wahiawa, promises that the play will deliver “a pseudo-steampunk version of Wonderland, and fun for the whole family.” The curtain goes up at 7:30 p.m. March 27, 2 and 7:30 p.m. March 28 and 2 p.m. March 29.
The classic musical also offers a special performance for school groups March 27, if there is enough interest. For details, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
